The Hat Show is a new television programme, which hopes to showcase the unique and innate talent of Irish hat designers.

The project, which will be screened in 2016, is the brainchild of presenter and fashion fanatic Emily O'Donnell.

Dublin native Emily currently presents her own weekly lifestyle show for local station Irish TV.

With her background in fashion, Emily wanted to take on a new project to promote emerging and existing talent in the millinery industry.

Filming for the six-part series has already begun, with Emily presenting and producing the project herself.

The socialite and fashion writer is looking to feature both male and female milliners from all over Ireland on the show.

"I want people from all walks of life, people of different ages with different stories," she said.

"I have a couple of big name milliners confirmed that are taking part but I'm putting the call out for those talented people who are making hats in their bedrooms to come forward and contact me," she urged.

"It will be screened on Irish TV and Sky and also in the US as Irish TV are currently making waves across the sea, so there will be a huge audience watching," Emily added.
