Society Milliner

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:08 pm on 15 February 2011

Lindsay Kennett has always had a head for fashion. Even as a boy from a farm in Glenorchy in the 1930s, Kennett would watch the tourists in Queenstown and sketch their clothing. That boy would grow up to be New Zealand's leading milliner. His hats have been worn by royalty, and the who's who of New Zealand society. Some of his hats are on display now, not far from his childhood home at the Lakes District Museum in Arrowtown.
