Royal Ascot, The Derby, Polo in the Park – are these high society events about the horses or the hats?

Milliner in Residence at The Milestone hotel, Louis Mariette, knows hats. With The Milestone’s  Horses, Hats and High Society package, guests will be treated to a consultation with Louis and choose creations from his ready-to-wear collection. He is also available to design a custom hat if you want something truly unique.
