Absolutely gorgeous hat, everything I hoped for and more. It fits perfectly and looks fabulous. Edie was a star from start to finish, very pleasant and very professional. Highly recommended!

Edie was incredibly accommodating and helpful and I absolutely adore my hat. It's beautifully made and a joy to wear, the craftsmanship is amazing. I placed the order at relatively short notice and received the hat in good time for the wedding I wanted to wear it to. Edie was also very responsive to queries and last minutes changes about additional decorations and ribbon colour.

About

The cherry on the cake...

Edie discovered her creative spirit at a young age and has since garnered millinery fans in fashion, press and celebrity circles. She spent an immensely intense and rewarding few years in tuition with millinery historian Jane Smith, which gave her the opportunity to develop as a designer and find her own unique style. She creates sculptural hats, including those made from fine straw braids.

Edie insists on handling materials whilst designing, eschewing the sketching process altogether to focus on touch and observation as a means of investigating every possibility before deciding upon the hats final form. She specialises in creating beautiful couture hats with a timeless aesthetic: each one with a story to tell of their own.

Her hat styles oscillate between art and fashion; they orbit around sculpture and hairstyle. Original hats have been spotted at Royal Ascot, Melbourne Cup and the Queens Annual Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. Edie has designed hats for artists performing at the Brit Awards and numerous special events around the world. Her millinery studio is situated in a creative hub of central London.

Welcome! All of our products are made to order. They are individually made, one at a time. Great care and attention is given over to each piece. Hand dyed and natural materials used may have subtle colour or texture variations making each handmade item unique special. Please note traditional couture methods are used to create our straw braid hats. This can mean that 'making time' can vary depending on the volume of orders we have received. Currently, making time will be around 2-3 weeks for straw hats, and 1-2 weeks for our smaller straw pieces. Rush orders are sometimes possible, simply send me a message to discuss what you need and when you need it for. I'm happy to help if I possibly can
