I draw my inspiration from the natural world and my experience working as a florist. This has given me a good understanding of the anatomy of plants, colours, shapes and textures which feed directly into my millinery style. I try to create unique and interesting designs by framing the beauty of the world that surrounds us in fresh and unexpected ways. We can all appreciate that a rose is beautiful but I want us to admire its transition from bud, to blooms. Raggedy petals, to seed head and to see the infinite beauty in each stage of its existence. Because of this my work has a soft whimsical, romantic and nostalgic feel to it. I hope it brings to mind long hot hazy summer days and delicious evenings of laughter with friends.

I have just completed the millinery HNC at Kensington and Chelsea college and have previously completed 'Millinery Levels 1 & 2 alongside many other specialist short courses such as feather workshops, statement hats, flower making and couture finishes. I have also interned with Jane Taylor and at The Mad Hatter. All of which have given me a strong technical grounding in millinery and my design process is becoming increasingly refined.

I have been taking private commissions on for a few years now and am experienced in delivering individual designs tailored to suit each clients needs and personality. If you are interested in commissioning a bespoke piece from me, or would like to buy one of the designs from the current collection please contact me below.
