We offer a couture millinery service, where we will design and make you a bespoke hat, or headpiece to match your outfit and suit your occasion.
We are able to dye feathers, sinemay and silk to ensure that your hat is the identical colour to compliment your outfit.
A commission costs between £125 for a simple piece up to £450 for a fully trimmed blocked hat with handmade flowers and complex trim.
Generally we follow a simple 3 step process which takes between 3-6 weeks depending on complexity of design and time of year,
Firstly, make a no obligation appointment to discuss your requirements; it is ideal if you bring with you your outfit so we can discuss ideas to suit your look.
At the consultation you will have your head measured and try on different hats and headpiece shapes and together we can choose a style which suits your face shape, silhouette and outfit. We will also discuss the type of trims which you desire and generally have fun putting together the finishing touches to your outfit. Finally, you will be given a guide as to how much your commission will cost and if you want to go ahead at this stage you will be asked for a 50% deposit.
If you decide to go ahead with your commission at the second consultation you will try on the basic shape of your design, changes can be made at this stage and different trims will be discussed further.
The 3rd visit will be when you try your hat on for the final time and take it away and pay the remainder of the commission price.
