Wearing a hat is a step further to express your style. The creation of a hat is more satisfying as the art of beauty is, you can design as you create . . . . without drawing!
My passion grew in styling since young, growing up with 4 elder sisters that loved dressing up. I studied at London College of Fashion (now University of Arts London) and lucky enough to immediately work in the fashion industry after my summer graduation in Westminster.
Further down my career line other than garments, I worked with handbags, accessories and some footwear, which I thoroughly enjoyed all categories. However, there was always something unfulfilled but I could not figure out what it was.
Until I took a career break after 17 years, I decided to learn new skills and booked a day millinery course. A day completed and I booked myself on a two day course, then a week course, then another . . . . . then before I knew it I became a Milliner sewing day and night with passion.
My friends would talk about their nights out or their children growing up, I would tell them about my creations and send them pictures of my new hats. I am sure I bored them, but these were my nights in and these are my kids.
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.
