About me

I have two very different jobs. By day I'm a Qualification Development Manager for Pearson, managing a team of Qualification Development Leaders who develop work-based learning qualifications. By night I design and create fascinators, hats and bridal headpieces for my company Doll's Mad Hattery, using a combination of vintage and new materials. Both roles require organisation, time management, excellent people skills and creative thinking.

  • Doll's Mad Hattery is a Midlands based millinery company. We create beautiful bespoke cocktail hats, bridal headpieces and fascinators to match any outfit. We love vintage sparkles and old lace and have a large collection of ribbons and old brooches. We make one off pieces, so you won't turn up to a wedding and see somebody else wearing the same. Whether you're going to a party, looking for something for bridesmaids or you're the bride, we can create something to perfectly finish off your outfit.
