Victoria Brown

Wearable hats and inventive jewellery inspired by textiles.

Selected Works

Personal Statement

My hats are witty, beautifully crafted and subtly surreal. I work to commission, making hats and headdresses that are the crowning glory for a special day. The jewellery is inspired textiles; I use wood, silver, vintage knitting needles and silver thimbles, to make unique earrings necklaces, bracelets and brooches. I trained at Goldsmiths, London College of Fashion and the Royal College of Art. My felt and hats have 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 My hats bring a smile, a sense of confidence and a feeling of joy to those who wear them. Sometimes a quietly eccentric hat, understated yet unique, simple yet complex - these are vintage hats for modern heads.
