My 2015 collection is all about simple elegance.
Inspiration for this collection is centred around uncommon, eye-catching materials. These materials have inspired me to try new, exciting and experimental techniques to best bring out their natural beauty.
I have used beautiful and rare vintage raffia for the boater and headband bases. This is a material which gives a most incredible sheen. My technique of raffia wrapping is an extremely time consuming method. You will not be seeing hats like this on every second head!
The trims I have used to pair with this are simplistic yet sculptural and are made from futuristic foil, colourful silk abaca, classic silk satin and shiny metallic braid.
