There is something special in every Eastern state. Melbourne has Royal Arcade, Sydney has The Strand and Brisbane you have the most delightful and most charismatic of all; Brisbane Arcade.
This is an Aladdin's cave of treasures, with the jewel in the crown being 'The Hat Box'. Ladies, this shop is about us. You cannot walk by without amazing hats and facinators drawing you in.
Dale Olsson, who adores the races and fashion owns this treasure chest of femininity. Dale is not a milliner herself but has learnt so much about the technical aspects of millinery. Dale has searched Australia for the finest designers and displays fifteen designers from around Australia. “Each milliner has a distinctive style so there is something for everyone.” Dale said. Dale can also organize special orders for her customers to match an outfit, for brides or Fashions on the Field entrants.
When you want that special look for a day, consult with dale about your outfit and look as Dale is a frequent Fashion winner in both Brisbane and Melbourne.
Last year 'The Hat Box' was asked to hold its own show in the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival. What an honor. In June Dale is off to London's Royal Ascot where she will be talking business with Phillip Treacy and Stephen Jones.
Ladies and Gentlemen (as 'The Hat Box' has a huge selection of mens hats as well), if you have any doubts about your ensemble this Carnival, be sure to drop in to see Dale. I am sure Dale has the perfect piece for you.
Many other milliners are featured, Meredith McMaster and Alexandra Harper just to name a couple.
