This lecture by textile curator Dilys Blum explores the Surrealist hat from its origins in the art of the Dada and Surrealist movements through its fashionable incarnations in the work of Elsa Schiaparelli and others from the 1930s through the 1950s and, most recently, by contemporary designers such as Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy.

Dilys Blum is senior curator of costume and textiles at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
