A Milliner is a person who designs, makes, trims, or sells femme hats/headpieces/fascinators (fun fact-the most famous milliner is probably Phillip Treacy- milliner to the English royals!)
In both Our millinery and costume design work We take everyday objects, up-cycled and low-cost materials and reimagine them into luxurious objects of whimsy and glamour.
