"This is Silk Abaca made from a warp weave of stiff abaca threads (as in Sinamay) and weft threads in silk. It first appeared in Millinery about 7 years ago. What we love about it is the sheen & vibrant colours from the silk and no need to…"
I have been wearing hats all my life, Ever since i was old enough, every sunday i'd trot off to church with a hat that my Nana had made on my head. And i still do! Except now i make my own.
I love going to church and looking around and seeing my hats standing out in the crowd.
I started Learning Millinery when i was about 16 from my Nana who has been making hats for about 40 years. Because i grew up watching nana make hats, i naturally wanted to learn too. So now we work together in our Studio giving each other inspiration and different ideas because we have such different Styles.
Miss Lauren, your hats are simply spectacular! I do had a grandma, who wore hats to church every Sunday---you could find her by her hats! I too, have always loved hats; yours are real works of art! What might be the price range of your hats, and where do you live? I've been feeling my way around, and find that I am more a customer, than a hat designer.
Take care, and I hope to hear from you!
