About me

I am a milliner and prop maker with an intense passion and pride for my craft, a sensualist feel for fabrics and form with a meticulous and prophetic eye for detail and trends. After growing up between the majesty of Rome and serenity of Tuscany I have worked for a number of local theatre groups before coming to the UK to complete and perfect my studies after which I soon found myself working with eminently influential milliners such as Phillip Treacy and Piers Atkinson and being ingratiated into the world of contemporary fashion design before going onto work in the world of film and theatre with Rizvi Millinery Thehattrix on award-winning global productions such as Disney’s Lion King and Aladdin and then founding my own company working on shows such as Katy Perry’s 2017 Glastonbury performance. Working within such a theatrical and diverse arena creating for models, performers and musicians has naturally inspired my ranges, with each piece having a personality, a story and a role to play, no matter how subtle, discrete, loud or proud. Whether creating unique one-off show pieces or themed ranges for wedding ensembles, every hat, fascinator and accessory is uniquely inspired and lovely hand crafted, encapsulating a broad technical and creative expertise.
