I’ve always loved making hats and there are many parts to making the perfect hat.
Firstly it’s the initial design - this could be designing the new collection or designing a hat especially for an individual client or collaboration between us both.
Secondly there's using traditional couture methods and craftsmanship in creating a hat that will last a life time. I get immense pleasure in hand blocking a hat and sewing everything by hand. A hat is a thing of beauty, a sculpture or a piece of art to be enjoyed by the wearer and admired by the observer”.
