2012 Hatty Awards Winners

My proudest moment last year was winning the Best Hat at Cheltenham Festival (there were 300 milliners). Cheltenham Festival is the most prestigious Horse Racing event in the UK. The hat was a 1940’s inspired design covered in pheasant feathers.

I got extensive media coverage for my win and as a result I obtained celebrity clients. I was also invited to work with a leading Horse Racing Magazine to produce a Little Black Book of Fashion to promote my hats. I styled and produced the shoot and handmade all the hats featured!

I graduated with distinction in HNC millinery from Leeds college of Arts in 2010. I have two daughters so I have to fit in hat making with the commitment of being a mother. I just launched my first ready-to-wear collection at a leading department store.

I live and work in the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors. The area is very diverse with wooded glens and beautiful coastline. I made a number of hats featuring pleats to signify the waves and iridescent beads to reflect water droplets
