Hats are life for Waltraud Reiner. She has been working in millinery for 30 years, and was recently inducted into the Australian millinery Hall of Fame. She is a designer and a teacher, and her passion for hats has inspired countless students to discover their own.
Waltraud launched millinery supplier Torb & Reiner in 2001, at first to provide a greater range of supplies to the students at the Melbourne School of Millinery, where she taught for 13 years. She has since expanded the business to incorporate made-to-measure services and millinery workshops.
