The hats in this section are perfect for any formal occasion in the warmer months. Whether you’re attending a wedding, a garden party, or a race day, there’s a hat here to suit your needs.
What is Sinamay?
Sinamay is a beautiful, natural straw, which is made from the fibres of the abaca tree. Lightweight and breathable, whilst also being versatile and strong; I find that sinamay is the perfect material for creating stunning pieces for spring and summer.
I have personally designed and handmade all of the hats in this section, working from my Sheffield studio, and using traditional millinery techniques.
I have either hand-blocked or free-formed all of the hats in this collection. These pieces are also almost entirely hand sewn. Indeed, with many of these pieces, I have only used a single line of machine stitching to the linings.
This collection features some of my most eye-catching designs – from the small and sculpted, to the large and free-formed – each hat in this collection is striking in its own unique way.
I have created a beautiful sense of movement within this particular collection. This has been achieved firstly through the shaping of the hats’ sinamay bases, and secondly, by my careful choice of trimmings. Hand-sculpted sinamay, hand-curled feathers, ribbonwork, and statement flowers, all add interest to this collection of formal sinamay hats.
