Amy Ward's Profile
I'm a millinery designer working from my studio in the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles. As a photographer and makeup artist I have worked for major fashion magazines in London, Paris and NY, but I have always been fascinated by whimsical hats. I use antique wood blocks to steam and shape my hats and they are all handmade. I had to carve my own blocks for my version of the 'mad hatter' style. I wanted to keep the essence of the quirky shape while refining it into a fresh, lighthearted collection. Most of my hats are one-of-a-kind, as I often use unique or vintage trim for a personal touch. I hope my hats lift your spirit and make you smile.
