Pastry Chef Turned Milliner

So almost 8 years ago I really wanted this amazing pillbox hat. My husband said it was too expensive so I tried making it myself. After completing an amazing hat I was hooked and devoted my free time to learning the traditional art of millinery. I studied under Joy Scott in Chicago and got the basics to get me going.

Since then it's been a whirlwind of crazy hats coming out of my shop. I've gone from glue gunning cardboard and fabric to creating 100% hand sewn beauties. I strive to make each hat quirky, one of a kind fascinators, hats, and headpieces perfect for all occasions.

I've been worn to the Grammy's, been on the New York Fashion Runway, The Carrie Diaries, Disney and to hat lovers all over the world.

I cannot believe how far I've come and can't wait to see where I'm going. - Amanda

    For the past 3 years I've been living, eating, and breathing the world of millinery. I started making hats for myself but found out quickly that I wouldn't be able to keep them long as people were buying them off my head.

Ex-Pastry Chef Turned Milliner

Since 2010 my love for felt baubles and hair accessories had grown into the art in millinery. Study under Milliner Joy Scott I have been able to take those lessons and make my own unique quirky millinery style.

In the 9 years of hat making have been seen at The Grammys, on a New York Fashion Runway, Kiki Magazine, Disney, The Carrie Diaries, Major Print Publications, and on many stylish ladies.

Everything is done by hand in my studio. Each stitch my own. I hope you enjoy my crazy creations as much as I do.

Please note that hat colors may be slightly different than pictured depending on your computer screen.
