I Love Hats Because?
What's not to love about hats!? Seriously, I love hats because every woman should have something made especially for her. Most women could never afford couture clothing, but bespoke millinery can be found at a price point attainable to many women. Also, I love the way an exceptional hat make a woman feel.
About Me
Millinery is my second career and first passion. I spent 20 years in corporate marketing and NGO work before giving millinery a go full time. It offers me the flexibility to run a business and still be active in the global women's movement.
