About

Welcome to my world!!

Overview.
My shop aims to reflect how I feel I am - fun, romantic, delicate and very detailed. It is also inspired in my grandmother’s passion of the 40s-50s haute couture.

The journey.
It all began as a hobby by designing hats and fascinators for myself. Items from a time long gone which I felt were either no longer made with the care they once were or are only accessible to a lucky few. Friends began making requests and, eventually, one thing led to another. Here I am today incredibly proud of having designed beautiful items for brides and more.

The crafting!
Every creative process begins with an idea, but in order to turn that into something great we all need to invest a lot of care into moulding it. I translate my inspirations to paper and perfect. This evolves to the fun stage of testing many materials and colours until I’m happy. Hours then go into experimenting with traditional millinery techniques (hat blocks, heated iron balls, etc.) with newer techniques (polymer clay, etc.).

All handmade, stitch by stitch and piece by piece with the hope that it one days makes somebody as happy as it made me creating it!

Please it is very important not to get your straw hat wet, as it will lose its shape. Please also store in a dry place but out of direct heat and light, as this will make the straw brittle over time.
