Personal Statement

I trained at Goldsmiths and the Royal College of Art, studying felt-making and millinery, and my hats have since been exhibited worldwide, from Japan to Kazakhstan. I worked for the global fashion house Jean Muir, working closely with Miss Muir on each collection.
The V&A museum acquired one of my hats for their fashion collection and I was also commissioned by the Worshipful Company of Feltmakers to make a hat for the Queen, known as the Armada Hat.
I work to commission – I enjoy meeting clients who want a hat for a special day – and, through conversation and experimentation, producing a headpiece that is the crowning glory for that occasion. Getting to know the wearer is essential in allowing me to bring your personality to my creations. The commissioning of a hat is a fun and exciting experience.
I respond to each client’s ideas, and I bring something playful to each design: my hats are witty, beautifully crafted and subtly surreal.
My hats bring a smile, a sense of confidence and a feeling of joy to all those who wear them. Sometimes a quietly eccentric hat, understated yet unique, simple yet complex - these are vintage hats for modern heads.
