I Love Hats Because?
I believe that a well designed hat can make any women feel beautiful and empowered. I want women to feel confident in my creations, while still remaining feminine
About Me
My name is Irina Dobrovolska. I was always dreaming about making the hats since, back in 1996, when I was in my 16th and made my very first hat using cardboard paper and white veil fabric. Since that time I did every possible step into a world of handmade staff.

* Self-taught till 2013
* July 2013 - short course "Introduction to Millinery" at London College of Fashion
* September 2013 - second prize at Bridport Hat Festival competition, UK
* September 2015 - April 2016 study for City and Guild Level 2 Certificate at Kensington and Chelsea College (tutor Harvy Santos)
* September 2016 - June 2017 studied NHC "Millinery Design" at KCC (tutors Sarah Cant, Sophie Beale, Jo Miller and Ian Bennett)

I had marketed my products under the trademark “Custom Hair Accessories" before 2017 when I decided to rebrand it to the one that contain my own name but since my surname is quite long and difficult to pronounce I've chosen my nickname “Bluebird” and left my given first name Irina. And now it is Irina Bluebird.

In my work I use different millinery techniques and trimming’s elements and always happy challenging new techniques and developing new skills in the millinery world especially considering the fact that I will setting up my newly rebranded millinery name in Australia where we are heading to live after graduation.
