Fashion-conscious racegoers pay close attention ? not only is renowned milliner Neil Grigg coming to town, but he has brought a collection of his most revered hats with him.

Tomorrow night will mark the official opening of Mr Grigg's exciting new exhibition at the Grafton Regional Gallery, A Master Milliner's Retrospective. As special guest for the evening and master of ceremonies, Mr Grigg's creations will be paraded.

"Hats are very much a part of the look this season, they are sharper and smarter this year," Mr Grigg said.

An exciting feature of the exhibition will be the hat Mr Grigg was commissioned to make for Princess Mary of Denmark.

The Gallery's educational program officer, Cher Breeze, said the exhibition 'looked fantastic'.

"It is quite a special exhibition because Neil has close ties with Grafton and the Gallery," she said.

The night will kick off at 6pm and all members of the public are invited to attend. The cost is $20 and bookings would be appreciated.

The exhibition is held in conjunction with 'Horses Hat and Hors D'oeuvres', a collection of photographs from last year's July Racing Carnival taken by Daily Examiner photographers.

On Saturday Mr Grigg will hold a workshop at the Gallery.

Cost is $25 and bookings are essential on 66423177.
