Target audience?

I have recently been toying with the idea of going into bridal wear as well as developing a cheaper ready to wear collection for the "less serious buyer". As a young Milliner i know there are a lot of young people who want to enter Fashion on the field but don't quite have the income to support their greatest headwear desires. I have been thinking about doing two separate ranges one with…See More

Profile Information

I Love Hats Because?
They say something about everyone! Hats have the ability to transform the way someone looks, feels and acts. They are works of art which have a functional aspect to them.
About Me
I started Millinery in 2013, I was lucky enough to get into a class with Elaine, last minute when another customer pulled out! Since starting in 2013 my Millinery has grown, i have attended forums and classes with selected Australian Milliners and continued learning through lessons on Hat Academy whilst working in the millinery supplies industry and studying. Words can not describe how blessed i am that i stumbled upon Hat Academy, it has changed my life and now Millinery is my passion.

I have recently become a part of the Hat Academy Team and i hope to help other people realise their dreams like i have.
