Hello, thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy my creations.
My most successful creations say more about the wearer than me; the whisper heard ‘who is she? she must be famous*’ or the self-confident smile, that can’t be faked. Many commissions start by the statement 'I don't really wear hats and things' and result in something unique and wonderful, perfectly suited to that individual. Each creation is entirely one-off and unique – hand made in Wiltshire.
I have a honours degree in fashion, a millinery training, have been a curator in a textile and jewellery gallery working with top designers from around the world and I have with many famous high street brands. The key to the success of my own creations is more prosaic – my ability to listen and help clients find something that give them that special inner confidence. As Sophia Loren says 'Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.'
My range comprises fabulous cocktails hats, dramatic hats and couture hair clips for stylish ladies and gorgeous little girls as well as a small range of beautiful accessories. I combine skills from my career in jewellery, fashion and curation, using traditional millinery materials as well as silks, crystals and semi-precious stones sourced from around the world.
See me at work in this video of me giving an old hat a revamp.
