This head piece is so perfect for my wedding! The customer serviced received from Ella was fantastic. She emailed me right away to ensure I knew what I ordered, the color ect was all exactly what I wanted. She also let me know the timeframe it takes for her to personally hand make the piece and how long to expect it to take for shipping into the USA. This is good to know so I was not waiting around for it to ship, also would be good to know if my wedding was too soon for her to be able to get it to me in time. When I received the item, it was perfectly packaged, no damage and this delicate beauty fits perfectly !! Thank you so much for great service and a very lovely piece of wearable art.

Absolutely gorgeous! And a great seller as well :)
Welcome to my shop! ★CUSTOM ORDERS WELCOME★
Here is 4 min film from my workroom https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKlCXp94W0U
My journey with hats started in my childhood. My mum used to be a passionate dress maker, always preparing some fantastic, creative party dresses for me. I loved watching her and helping out with anything I could. I think that's how my passion started.
I remember as it were yesterday, sitting in my room making all the different hats and accessories for my dolls using fabrics scraps and any kind of haberdashery. My mum, very patient woman, never complained, not even when I ruined her skirt in the name of new design dress for my doll I named Małgosia!
Fast-forward to the time when I came across a tiny Millinery shop in my home town. I just couldn't take my eyes off all the stunning things in shop window! At that moment I decided to become a milliner.
Since 2001 I had the chance to develop and perfect my skills even more by working for renowned ateliers and milliners in England. Alongside the best designers of various head wear my own designs were born.
