  • Description

    The Strandvagen, one of Stockholm's most beautiful tree lined avenues - the spring sunshine - and lovely ladies, their heads crowned with frivolous nonsense. What more could a man wish for?
    The people of Stockholm packed the Strandvagen as tightly as one would expect for this eye-catching occasion, the competition to judge the most original or most humorous hat-style. Every competitors had to walk through the people who later, by popular vote, would elect the winner.

    After the 'parade' everyone repaired to the Skansen, to the more formal judging, where despite the challenge from the more sober elements of 'Haute Modisma' (or should we call it 'chapeau-couture') the funny hats swept the prizes aloft.

    The happy winner now carries her 'oeuvre' to the hat competition in Oslo and ultimately, to Paris, the mecca of 'frivolistes'.
