Hat Hire

Due to Covid-19 our Hat Hiring service will be closed until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience. We are however, still able to offer our hat commission service.


Borrowed Bespoke Millinery

Our Borrowed Bespoke Millinery is an unique service that allows clients to have a couture hat designed just for them and according to their requirements. With each piece commissioned like a regular commission the client will pay for a nominal price and have exclusive use of the hat for that occasion. The hat will then be returned to us & be included in our hat hire collection.
