My style is vintage with my own twist. I am the head milliner for a Steampunk clothing store www.clockworkcouture.com. I also take custom orders for outside clients and work from my own home workshop. My media is primarily buckram based frames that are covered with fabric and vintage/found odds and ends. I have been trained in what is called French Room millinery or literally "sewn by hand".
I am so happy to have found a millinery community as hat making has faded with the last few decades. I am hoping it makes a victorious comeback! Thank you for checking out my work.
