Millinery Designed Exclusively for You
Bespoke and ready made pieces to suit you
Hello, I'm Debbie
I have always loved wearing hats and fascinators. My interest in designing and making them was sparked when I lived for a time in Australia and I noticed the wonderful millinery creations that ladies wore to race day events. On my return to Scotland I attended Ladies Day at Perth Racecourse wearing a fascinator I had made and an obsession was born.
When I began I was completely self-taught, reading any millinery book I could find and watching tutorials.
I then took a blocking course with a well respected North East milliner who had made hats for the Queen and the wife of the then First Minister. This gave me the knowledge and confidence to block my own shapes which opened up a whole new world in millinery design. I am now a member of the Katherine Elizabeth Millinery & Business Academy where I learn new millinery techniques every two months and a registered member of the British Millinery Association.
Millinery fashion is constantly changing and evolving and I love to be able to be a small part of my client’s big day. The right hat or fascinator should complete an outfit and compliment the client’s style and personality. Bespoke millinery offers the opportunity to get the look you want designed and made exclusively for you.
