I am a trained Milliner based in the lovely little village of Highton, a suburb of Geelong. Using traditional Millinery techniques I create bespoke pieces, both contemporary and vintage style, using a vast collection of quality materials sourced locally and worldwide.
I have been a hunter and gatherer of vintage materials for decades. I like to create quirky headpieces for Bridal, Evening and Costume as well as Spring Racing hats and headwear. I am part of a Millinery circle in Geelong.
My studio workshop is in my 1930's Style Boutique Store,
RUBY & LEO, which is a Hat emporium for Men and Women, stocked with hundreds of ready to wear pieces as well as jewellery and other fashion accessories.
The Hats Off Conference was fabulous. So pleased you have joined me in Hat Academy and hope you find it inspiring. I am committed to helping you add to your skills.
I set this up to help Beginners -once you learn the basic techniques you will be surprised how creative you can be. Millinery is a creative art & in huge demand currently. Any questions do message me here.
