Not uninformed, don't worry.

I make each hat from scratch. I use buckram and millinery wire to form the shapes, then cover with fabric. Its time consuming, but very worth it.

That's so cool!  I have no idea how to make a hat, but it looks like it would be complicated.  You did a great job.  It's lovely.

Lol, it is complex but still fun, and worth every second..

For some reason, it makes me think of Alice in Wonderland.

Great work Smiley

I take that as a massive compliment, thank you

Thanks all for your opinions  Smiley

Thanks all

It can be attached to a band, or a comb, I havent done yet as Im not sure which I want.

It was not made on a block, It is a buckram and wire frame...Im hoping to pick up some hat blocks soon..

Today I finished my very first actual hat. I have been making fascinators etc, but this is where I really want to concentrate.

Hope you like it, I would love your opinions.

Hi all, been a while since I was on here, but I have been snowed under with my Fashion Design course. Lots of exciting things have been happening for me, but I thought I would post about my most exciting and personal...

I have been quietly and patiently teaching myself (with a little bit of outside help) the lesser practised art of Millinery or Hat making.

I have always loved hats, and head wear, most people who know me well, know that if i can wear something fancy in my hair, I will.

Since I began my fashion design journey, I have sometimes felt that I was missing my "calling". I do love making clothes, but I also struggle with it a little bit. I thought hat making was something that a regular person wasn't able to do. How wrong I was! A friend suggested that this might be where my heart lay and the rest is history!

A lot of research and practise later, I'm so happy to introduce my first small collection of millinery pieces. I'm still experimenting with different styles, materials and techniques, but I feel utterly fulfilled doing this.

Millinery seems to fit me so well. I feel confident wearing my own pieces, I feel like "me", like I finally found myself. That sounds a bit weird, but I have been a bit lost recently and this has made me realise that I am good at something.

After uploading some photos to Facebook, I was contacted by a fellow designer to collaborate on a project for Houston's first Fashion Week, later this year, and I'm thrilled. It feels like confirmation that I'm on the right path.

I'm looking forward to sharing my progress with you, so keep watching!  Smiley

I'd love some opinions on my work.. Smiley I have lots more pieces I could post, but don't want to post too many on my first Post for a while..
