Philip Treasy was born in Western Ireland in the 1960`s. in 1985 he moved to Dublin to go to the national college of art and design. During the time that he was studying there he began to make hats by hand to go along with the outfits that he designed. In those days when Philip would make hats by hand he looked at it as a hobby of his. Now you can find a simple looking hat of his on E-bay being sold for one thousand four hundred and seventy five dollars.
Talk about turning a hobby into a business!!
Because his work was so amazing he was awarded a place on the MA fashion design course at the royal college of art in London. Philip graduated with honors in 1990. Since then he has designed hats for the late Alexander McQueen, karl Lagerfeld, Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan.
