Video summary: Welcome to ByAlpha Couture!

Spice your outfits and outings in dazzling numbers from ByAlpha Couture!

Hello and Welcome! If this is your first time visiting, we are thrilled to have you stop by - you are so appreciated.

Having worked as a Soft Furnishings Designer for 23 + years now, my mind drifted towards millinery when I found myself recovering from knee surgery and bored to death sitting down doing nothing. Even though I wasn’t strong enough to handle the load of draperies, etc., I yearned to do something with my hands. Taking a look around, I saw the need to bring some high fashion to Portland, ME (where I was living at the time) so took time out and researched millinery.

Fast forward seven years to date, ByAlpha Couture’s journey is well on its way to climbing heights! In my designing, I love to capture the personality of my customers, and want them to glow with delight at what I have created for them to co-ordinate with their outfit(s). The repeated clients I keep getting and the positive testimonials I receive daily gives me the assurance that I am good at what I do and testifies to the knowledge I have in both fields.

Every design you find here starts with my own heart and hands and is carefully and meticulously crafted in my Ellenwood Studio, then sent to you with love! So thankful every day to be able to do what I love and equally thankful to you all for your support.

A grateful heart!
Janet

Additional policies and FAQs

What are fascinators made of?

Fascinators can be made of various types of fabrics and materials, all of which are combined to create a unique design. A few common materials used to create fascinators include: Sinamay, Felt, Parasisal, Feathers, Crinoline, Lace, Silk Flowers, to name a few.

Do I have to pay upfront?

Yes. You can purchase one of the items online as is, (color, design, etc) if it is still available. Alternatively, you can ask for a custom made design (bespoke) which is what most customers go for, given that they are looking for a specific color/design to match an outfit. Either way, you will have to pay upfront (1) to secure your place on The Design Board if ordering a bespoke design, and (2) to have your item shipped to you. Nothing with be shipped without prior payment.

What is a bespoke design?

A Bespoke design is the place to be if you need something created to compliment your outfit. All bespoke designs are priced on a client by client basis, as everyone is individual and materials will differ from piece to piece.

What is your time frame?

Depending on the time of the year and your location, your order can be completed anytime between one to three weeks. If you need a made-to-measure hat or fascinator for a particular function and need this sooner than specified, please call – in some instances, shorter timescales can be met (workload permitting).

I like a piece but want it changed a little. Will you customize it for me?

Yes. I will typically customize a piece for no additional charge, unless it substantially changes and adds cost, in which case I will let you know ahead of time. Just contact me and I will work with you to create the perfect design.

Could you copy a design I've seen?

No, this would be against the original designers' copyright and would be both unethical and illegal. The design can, however, be altered or tweaked, if you so desire. If you have a specific idea in mind this can be used as a source of inspiration but no direct copies of other people's work will be undertaken.

Colors

Please note that colors may vary due to screen resolution or suppliers fabric batches. This is not classed as faulty or a defect. If you are not sure about the right color shade of the chosen hat or headpiece, please contact me prior to purchase. Swatches of materials may be requested in advance.

Inquiries:

If you still have questions unanswered, please contact ByAlpha Couture.
Thank you!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

How to measure your head size (if ordering a hat). Measuring for your head size is both an art and a science. To figure out what size you wear, you will need to find a cloth measuring tape. Measure the circumference of your head at the place where you would wear a hat. Take the measurement in inches and refer to the chart below. If you are in between two sizes, choose the bigger size. You can always pad a hat smaller.

INCHES AVERAGE HAT SIZE
21 - 21.75 Small
22 - 22.5 Medium
22.75 - 23 Large
23+ X-Large

Care instructions

Any attempt to wash your headpiece will make them lose their shape and sometimes even wash away the colors. From experience, I know that even applying a damp sponge is not advisable as this can create permanent staining – I once tried to clean make up stains on the brim of my hat – bad move! Tip – to avoid make up stains, place a small piece of carpenter’s tape (the color of the fascinator, if possible) directly under the brim to avoid it touching your forehead before (or even whilst) wearing – good luck!
If you need to clean your fascinator or hat, we recommend removing any dust or particles with a low tack adhesive tape.

Custom and personalized orders

While I can color match pictures sent via email it is best if you can send in a piece of your outfit’s fabric or similar color (if applicable) for custom and personalized orders. Screens differ tremendously and my perception of what your outfit color is could be deceiving. Alternatively, I could mail you swatches of colors I have available. This will ensure we get the whole look perfect for you.
