In association with:

Joy City Shanghai
William was in Shanghai in December to launch the first major exhibition of his hats. The exhibition featured over 20 of his designs, displayed alongside jewellery by Shanghai designer Octavia Yang. Arranged by HAI Marketing in conjunction with the CBBC (China-Britain Business Council) as part of the UK-China Year of Cultural Exchange 2015, the exhibition, entitled ‘1/2 Ornaworld’ ran at Joy City Shanghai.
William said at the launch:
‘I would like to thank Joy City for inviting me here to Shanghai to exhiibit and to congratulate curator Lynn HU and the HAI Marketing team on creating this fantastic exhibition. My hats are very British in their style, so it’s great to be representing Britain in this collaboration. It’s a great concept and I think the combination of my hats with Octavia's jewellery works perfectly. This is my first time in China and everyone has been very friendly and nice, but I would love to see the stylish people of Shanghai wearing more hats!’
