Profile Information

I Love Hats Because?
They are a unique way of self expression and personal style. They are also one of the best ways to complete a look or to say something more.
About Me
I am 27. I am a Jamaican living in Barbados. I am very interested in developing my skills as a milliner. I started making hats in 2010. Everything I know so far have been through personal research, trial and error. I am very inspired by nature and things around me. I would like to be the best in the Caribbean and to represent my region to the best of my abilities.
