It is exactly as it is in the picture. Arrived in perfect time and very good communication from Fiona. It looks so delicate and yet is sturdy in design. It is stunning and I loved wearing it. Clip was comfy. An absolute joy to wear. Thank you.

Smaller one is "Lena" Bag clip or one of pair shoe clips. The larger is the "Lena" fascinator to match.

Another of the Reba designs on its way to Australia for early #melbornecup customer. So pretty in this silver and cornflower blue colour way. #handmadewithlove #fashionista #millinery


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, collect their hat (on the opposite side of High Street) before entering the races, and return in the evening when they leave.
