Treacy designs Brit Award

Philip Treacy has designed a Brit Award.

The iconic milliner known for his show stopping headpieces has now turned his hand to trophy design.

His creations will be handed out to the music stars who triumph in their category at the 2014 Brit Awards.

“My inspiration for the trophy comes from a uniquely British genre of music, Punk,” Philip said.

“Music has always been my inspiration and I’m fortunate to have worked with some of the music industry’s greatest artists.”

The annual ceremony celebrates the very best in British and international music.

Philip’s glossy black trophy has its own original headpiece; a circular grey and white mohawk that sits on top of the helmet of the statuette.

“Philip is renowned for his distinctive and memorable designs, so we are thrilled to have him on board for this year,” said Brits chairman Christian Tattersfield.

“His involvement guarantees that the 2014 award will continue the tradition of iconic Brits statues and we are pleased to be able to reward music creativity with something so unique and special.”

Philip follows in the footsteps of Dame Vivienne Westwood, who was the first designer asked to put her stamp on the award in 2011. Artists Sir Peter Blake and Damien Hirst have also designed a Brit.

Some of Philip’s most famous designs include Lady Gaga’s white lace headpiece and mask that the singer wore to the Brits in 2010. The singer dedicated her performance to the late designer Alexander McQueen.

He also created Sarah Jessica Parker’s garden themed hat for the London premiere of the Sex and the City movie. Several of his designs were on display at the 2011 royal wedding, with Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge also a firm fan.

The Brit awards take place in London on February 19, and will be hosted by actor and comedian James Corden.

Artists confirmed to appear include Katy Perry and The Arctic Monkeys.
