Construction

Every hat is constructed by hand,by me,using traditional millinery techniques.  Attention to detail is paramount.

Whether using felt,silk,velvet or straw,the methods are similar. Steaming and stretching materials over a hat form,or constructing many layers of foundation. 

I personally design and create each finishing detail for your unique hat. Due to this level of individuality,a hat can be created for a specific outfit, colour matching, and complimenting your style.

Hand made flowers are a sumptuous addition to a special creation. Each flower begins its life as a series of white fabrics,they are hand dyed,shaped and constructed over a period of many hours
