Bespoke Hats


Can you make a sprout hat? 180 sprout leaves on wired stems say yes!

My most talked about hat as part of Colchester’s Christmas Carol Festive Trail in December 2022

Red and Blue Swirl Cambridge Wedding

Bold colours and strong lines were the brief for this sinamay hat to pair with a flowing red dress from Boden and fitted navy jacket for a Cambridge College wedding.

Poppy Fascinator

A beautiful poppy print Hobbs dress was the starting point for this headpiece.

A delicate handmade silk poppy tops a pale blue silk base for understated elegance.

Orient Express Fascinator

A 1920s millinery technique for ribbon folding was used for the rosette on this headpiece.

The arrow quill complements it perfectly and it was worn at dinner on the Orient Express.

Feather Headpiece, Mother of the Groom

Bright, light and vibrant sums up this feather headpiece made for a mother of the groom.

The colours complemented the flowers in the Veni Infantino dress.

Blue and White, Mother of the Groom

Traditional style, but no muted colours here.

Made from cobalt blue and white sinamay , and trimmed with feathers.

This sinamay straw sculptured hat is perfect for a summer wedding.

Named after Skopelos, the Greek Island where Mamma Mia was filmed.


A teal green soft wool felt cocktail hat, trimmed with curled goose biots and a vintage brooch.

I’m imagining it being worn for afternoon tea in Vienna.


Stiffened guipure lace creates a headpiece with a difference.

Motifs are individually wired and arranged to give a halo headband which is light and easy to wear


Inspired by Sydney Opera House, and the blue waters of the harbour, this headpiece is made from over 10 meters of ribbon pleated into individual tiles.

Fascinators and Headbands

Wispy Headband

This headband used to be an eighties style wedding hat. The feathers have been repurposed into a light ethereal headband.

Snowflake? Firework? Cobweb? What’s your interpretation?

Origami Headbands

Inspired by the ‘Mathematical Bridge’ in Cambridge and pleated with precision.

Do you prefer a deco patterned faux leather, velvet or ribbon?

Red Silk Headband

This everyday headband is made from silk, locally woven in Sudbury in Suffolk.

Easy to wear, it adds elegance to your day.

Lily Fascinator

When you feel you need a little elegant ‘something’ to finish off your outfit, this burgundy lily with a pearl stamen is light and easy to wear.

Peacock Fascinator

A teal turquoise base with gently curving twisted biots and a peacock eye,

Something fun and frivolous with a nod to the roaring twenties.

Checkerboard Button

Black and cream are always a classic combination.

A simple buntal straw button, with a knotted cream trim are simply elegant.
