I’ve been crafting 'headwear' since the age of eight; mainly daisy-chain wreaths and ivy crowns! Professionally designing and making headwear for the past 15 years.
I hold a BA HONS degree in Design Crafts, specialising in millinery. I have over 5 years' experience as the manager and ‘in-house’ milliner at a local hat shop in Harrogate, with hundreds of delighted customers.
Each and every one of my hats is lovingly hand-crafted in my studio, here in North Yorkshire.
I am constantly inspired by what I see; always in search of the next striking colour combination, or beautiful pattern or textures within my daily life. I’m often seen capturing a dew-heavy cobweb or delicate poppy whilst on the school-run!
I love the playfulness of hats and the glamour they can create. It’s amazing how different styles of hats can create such different personalities; from large picture hats, dipping over an eye to create a sense of sexy mystery, or a precariously perched fascinator for a bit of flirtatious fun!
The right hat can give the wearer so much more confidence, even uncover an allure that was hidden before! I individually design and make each piece with care and consideration, ensuring every creation is easy to wear and flattering to the individual.
You may be looking for something to turn heads and draw a comment, or something a little more simple and understated, I endeavour to cater for all.
I want my hats to be easy and comfortable to wear but also affordable to everyone, whatever the budget!
My aim above all else, is to create something to make you feel special and unique, whatever the occasion.
