Royal Ascot is pretty much Christmas for all hat designers and milliners. It’s always a busy time of year. So far, this year has been the busiest but I love it! It’s so creative! Customers tend to be a lot more adventurous which is exciting and lets your mind run wild. Royal Ascot is such a wonderful event, wrapped in tradition and theatrics. It’s so much fun to be a part of.

A day in the life of myself (around this time of year) normally consists of early mornings, no time for lunch and, what’s that you call it? Sleep? With this summer’s collection ‘Semi-Construct’, I wanted to play with construction and the subject of beauty in the production of millinery; with key pieces in the collection created to stand out from the crowd, to feel confident and to wow! It’s definitely been my favourite so far.

As everything is handmade here in Mayfair, we are able to help you with all requests, and are on hand to find the perfect colour, style and trim that you desire!

A hat is to enhance your beauty, to make you feel fantastic! I’ve put together a few tips but at the end of the day the secret is to try on as many as you can to see which shape you prefer and find that one that makes you feel incredible. One thing you must check is that your hat is secure; the last thing you want is your hat passing the last furlong before the horses do.

Please come and visit us in the atelier for something beautiful for Royal Ascot.  Quote ‘Mayfair’ in store to receive 10% off bespoke orders before 9th June.
