Commissioning a hat encompasses a wide variety of options, from tweaking stock items to opening up a whole world of bespoke options
How to commission
Although it’s design is more of an occasion hat, there is nothing more joyous than downplaying it with jeans. It’s super easy to put on and wear and elevates any outfit.
The timing was perfect - I had an event that I needed my hat for, and it came in plenty of time. So I could check it with my dress and shoes, play around with the placement on my head, and it even in good enough time for me to colour match it with my lipstick!
The design process was a real collaboration between the milliner and myself. Sarah understood the brief and listened to all of my ideas, infusing her instinct for design, her flair and her inspiration in to the process. Each of her ideas was thoughtful and added immeasurably to the final look. I couldn’t have been happier with the interpretation of my brief. It felt like a real couture experience.
I was happy that the hat didn’t dominate my
outfit, which was exactly the look I was after,
but there is no doubt that it enhanced my
overall look immeasurably and I had such
lovely feedback from my friends.
The hat was perfect for the occasion,
and more importantly, perfect for my style.
I took so much joy in wearing a hat that was
designed and made just for me.
That felt very special.
If I’m honest, I think I was undercharged
for such a bespoke process.
