About me

 

London-based Milliner that specialises in making bespoke hats, headpieces and bridal veils from my London studio. Having created bespoke pieces for celebrities, Brides and The Queens Garden Party to name a few. I was honored be to be interviewed on the subject of Vintage Millinery and featured in Wayne & Gerardine Hemingway's new book, 'The Vintage Fashion Bible' where I was asked to advise on Vintage Millinery collecting and Hat restoration techniques. Having trained in Millinery under the guidance of Couture Milliners Noel Stewart and Prudence, I have gone on to create rich collections of ready to wear and bespoke creations since 2012 under the Brand Name of Maiden Found Millinery. All Maiden Found Hats and Headpieces are hand-made in my London studio using materials of the highest quality and traditional techniques and hand-finishing. I pride myself on the comfortable, hassle free, bespoke service I offer to clients, which allows the customer to create the perfect vision to complete their chosen outfit.
