150 years of Alice In Wonderland

This year marks the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carrolls childrens book.

150 years on, and Alice In Wonderland is still a character known and loved by many.

A fantasy world still mesmorising children and adults to this day, Alice In Wonderland has so much to offer your imagination. From talking cats, magic cakes, secret doors and mad hatters, whats not to like? This magical world is every child and adults dream.

The love for the book has brought about many adaptions; including the 2010 Walt Disney Pictures film starring Mia Wasikowsa, Johnny Depp and Helen Bonham Carter to name a few.

One of Bee Smith Millinery’s best sellers was inspired by Alice In Wonderland and the tea party. Originally the headpiece was made for Bee’s Alice themed birthday party; but after recieving many compliments and it becoming a favourite design of Bee’s, the teacup became an essential piece within her Spring/Summer collection.

We must not forget the most famous hat within the book, the Mad Hatters top hat! Similar to that of the book, many variations have also been made on the design of the mad hatters top hat throughout the years.
