Paul Stafford holds an MA in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, which forms the basis for his scientific and engineered approach to construction. He trained in traditional technique under Rachel Trevor-Morgan (milliner to HRH The Queen) developing an attention to the finest details and skilled handwork. During his MA in Fashion Womenswear specialising in Millinery, from the Royal College of Art, Paul refined his approach to design, how he works with materials, and defining his softly geometric aesthetic.
Paul's engineered yet playful approach works with each material's properties and integrates materials in innovative ways. Beautifully high-fashion with a desirable minimalism, The Season Hats has a unique style, offering contemporary refinement combined with wearability.
Collections are exhibited at London Fashion Week as part of the BFC’s NEWGEN Accessories, having previously been selected for Stephen Jones's Headonism initiative.
