Philip Hannel interviewed in his Houston workroom, is in the act of crafting an exquisite flower, each petal individually shaped and molded to replicate the intricacy and beauty of nature. Even the tools he is using speak to the precision and quality that are a hallmark of his work.
"My aesthetic is modern with a nod to the classic glamour of the film noir scene of the 1940's", Hannel explains. His creations, in various stages of completion fill the room. From clever witty fascinators to breathtakingly dramatic ultra-wide-brimmed pieces, each is bespoke and they reflect a depth of fashion knowledge, from classic to trendy. He sums up his approach to style concisely, "Confidence is the boldest accessory."
