I have always loved accessories, especially hair accessories, whether it’s a floppy winter beany hat or a little glitzy hair clip, I always have something in my hair. When I was younger, I used to go to functions with my mum where all the ladies would wear hats. I used to sit there and admire them all and think, the lady opposite me, would look so much better if those feathers on her hat where in another colour or she wore a hat without a brim!
When I was in University, driving myself mad about what I could do for my final collection for my degree show. Throwing ideas back and forth, I realised that I wanted to work in the creative industry so this was my chance! I have always loved hats and love the fact that a hat finishes off outfit. It’s a great accessory and when one is put on your head it gives you confidence and makes you feel great. I took an internship at Philip Treacy and then created a collection of headwear for my degree show. From then, I knew that I wanted to focus on a career in millinery.
