My top selling peacock headpiece still after 6 years. And always such a fun headpiece for the wearer.

About

www.dress-2-impress.com - UK Milliner, and Royal Ascot Hat Hire

Trained Graphic Designer, who moved to Ascot, Berkshire in 1999 and discovered the Fantastic World of Millinery.
Thousands come to Ascot every June for the worlds biggest Millinery Event - Royal Ascot, and I turned my 2D Graphical knowledge into 3D artforms - Hats.
My Millinery Designs are always highly creative, and with a strong use of colours, graduations, feather arrangements, and graphical shapes.

The Graphic Design industry changed in the late 90's to Computer added design. With Graphic Designers no longer making physical artwork by hand, it was a blessing in disguise, to convert to Millinery, where I can apply my knowledge of colour and shapes, spacial awareness and forms to Hats and Fascinators. Still getting my hands covered in glue, paint, feathers, materials like I have always loved to do...... and spend hours of enjoyment creating physical items, for my customers to have hours of enjoyment wearing.

I also run a Hat Hire service at the Royal Ascot Races, where people can book online in advance (www.dress-2-impress.com), collect their hat (on the opposite side of High Street) before entering the races, and return in the evening when they leave. Remember it is a requirement to have a hat or Fascinator at Royal Ascot, so don't plan on not wearing one if visiting. Both Mens Top Hat and Ladies Hats and Headpieces are available.

Shipping
Fascinators are made to order and at quieter times of the year, outside of the 4 weeks running into the Kentucky Derby - Beginning May, Melbourne Cup - Beginning November, or Royal Ascot - Mid June, then your order should be ready to send within 5 working days. Some smaller clip fascinators are able to be made and sent within just one working day, and are advised so in the items description, and title.

During the weeks running into the above named events, please give me a few extra days for your fascinator to be made. Larger headpieces do require more time (1 week -2 weeks to be made, and this is also advised on the items description page, so please do read and check for production time in the description.)

UK customers orders are sent by Royal Mail signed delivery. If you are not home then the Royal Mail should but don't always leave a note for you to collect from sorting office. So if been a week please check with your sorting office. Your tracking number will be emailed to you and marked on the order for your reference when we post.

Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds are given if item not as described. If you receive and the item doesn't suit, then I offer refund upon return, unworn with any labels attached, minus 10% and the postage costs.
Returns must be made within 14 days. This means the date on the post mark of the return parcel, must be within 14 days of date our outward tracking shows delivery. So if you receive on 1st of the month, you must post it back by 14th etc.
I CANNOT Accept returns where customer has requested an item by custom made to their specifications (colour changes, additonal flowers added, base shape changed etc.) as these items have been made specifically for you to your outfit request. So if requesting something be changed or made specific to you, please do be sure that you do indeed want the piece made.
