Why do we love hats? I know why I do. I believe that they are the most uncomplicated way to personalize a face.
It is an amusing
short cut to becoming any character for any amount of time that you fancy.
Headwear is one of the most personal of accessories. I think eye glasses are the number one personal accessory or “necessorie.”
Unfortunately, it not so easy to make your own eye glasses, but anyone can learn to design a hat for themselves.
After over 30 years of making hats that appealed to people from all walks of life and from around the global,
I have decided, which for me is a life-changing decision, to share my unique hat design making skills.
I am only parting with 5 of my vintage wooden millinery hat forms that were made in Germany.
I have had the honour of owning over 400 millinery hat forms as a milliner.
