Design and creation of unique hats

My name is Joanna and I am a milliner – in other words I design and make hats.

All my hats and headpieces are made by hand in my small studio in Hove, East Sussex. I make each piece to order. Most of my work is bespoke. To find out out how the bespoke service works, take a look at the “your hat” page of my website.

Each autumn/winter I also offer a collection of styles that can be made to order in a range of colours and sizes. These are shown in the collections section of the website.

I was honoured to have a ready to wear design (the “Prospect” Fedora) chosen by Lock & Co of St James’s for sale in their shop and online. This also led to a blissful time picking up “tricks of the trade” by working alongside the best in the business – the ladies’ couture millinery team at Lock.

So whether you already have a particular idea of what you would like, or need help choosing the right design to complement a specific outfit, then I can create a hat especially for you.

Whatever you choose, your hat will be made up by hand to the highest standards in the best quality materials.

If you have any questions about what I do or need some hat related advice do get in touch; I LOVE talking about hats.
