How is the event financed?

Barcelona milliners Cristina de Prada and Nina Pawlowsky have been the organizers of the event since the first edition in 2005.

The Hat Stroll is not a legal entity and owes its existence to the unpaid work of Nina and Cristina and the direct (non-monetary) contributions of companies such as The Hat Magazine (commemorative badges), the Spanish Millinery Association (bags, posters and flyers), Servei Estació (promotional shop window) and Barcelona’s Town Hall (photocall, stage, live music and more) this last one channelled through the Rambla de Catalunya Traders Association. Those institutions and companies pay directly to the suppliers and no money moves through the hands of the organizers.

The organizers are very grateful to have such faithful supporters!
