He initially studied at the National College of Art and elegance in Dublin in 1985 before moving to London to review millinery at the Royal College of Art. His acclaimed graduate show in 1990 resulted in offers to collaborate with international designers like Valentino, Versace, and Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, with whom he worked for ten years. the first hat he designed for Chanel was the twisted birdcage, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for the duvet of British Vogue. the same year he established his own company, Philip Treacy Limited, and went on to win the title of Accessory Designer of the Year at British Fashion Awards in 1991, 1992, and 1993 and again in 1996 and 1997. The dramatic power of his designs has meant that they appeal to extraordinary, iconic women like Isabella Blow and wonder Jones. Renowned for her ability to spot and nurture talent, Isabella Blow is probably the foremost extreme showcase for his work. She first encountered his hats when working with the design editor Michael Roberts at Tatler magazine, and on Treacy's graduation invited him to line up a workshop within the basement of her house on Elizabeth Street, Belgravia, London.

His signature kind of playful surrealism allied with complete mastery of the craft skills inherent in millinery has resulted during a singular reputation. Drawing on diverse subjects, from orchids to Warhol, Philip Treacy continues to receive universal acclaim from both fashion press and buyers.

In 2000 he was invited by the Chambre Syndicale de la couture, the administration of French fashion, to participate within the haute couture show, the first millinery designer to undertake to to so in seventy years. Evidence of the broad appeal of his aesthetic, Treacy exhibited at the Florence Biennale in 1996, and in 2001 he collaborated with artist Vanessa Beecroft on an installation at the Venice Biennale. In 2002 the Royal College of Art awarded him an honorary doctorate.

Elaborate hats, demure straw bonnets, and lavish headdresses, called "poufs" were the height of fashion within the half-moon of the eighteenth century. Rose Bertin's witty creations were perched high on the coiffure and featured rising suns, miniature olive trees, and, most famously, a ship full sail. Her fame was enhanced by her notoriety and attracted an array of girls of European nobility. Her salon survived the French Revolution but sadly all her hats, a touch like her famous clients, have disappeared and should only be traced in copies of the Journal des modes, which according to the custom of the quantity , never mentioned or credited the designer or creator of model hats.
