Steampunk Top Hats

Top Hats for those who love Steampunk!

We have recently been working on some new Steampunk designs to feature on my daughter's new hat shop website www.arcadehatters.co.uk
We have had a lot of fun creating these designs, all of which have hand stitched decorations, and all of which are bespoke one-off pieces. They are available to buy from the website.
If you would like one designed specifically for you please contact us for more information and to discuss your requirements.

Ladies Hats newly designed for our 2017 Collection

'Gone With The Wind'
A classic hat named after the film 'Gone With The Wind'.







This name was given by a visitor to Windsor Castle where my hats were on display when I gave a talk about millinery in conjunction with the curator of the Queen's clothes exhibition last December.
The brim is covered with small black roses, the decoration around the crown is a black silk band and delicate bow.



Finally part of our new collection has been photographed. Soon to be on our website!

Hats for Special Occasions - Ladies Day at Royal Ascot

Hats for Special Occasions - Ladies Day at Royal Ascot


Today we had a product photo shoot in the shop and it made me reminisce about part of the collection from last year.

 This hat was worn at Royal Ascot last year and was apparently admired by many thus making the owner very excited and even more pleased with her hat.

For any lady wearing a hat to such an occasion it is always a delight when others pay compliments.



Our new collection will be on the website soon.

Richard Henry my Apprentice Milliner

My Husband Richard Henry is often referred to as my apprentice milliner.
As the Spring/Summer collection of hats are being designed at the moment his help with blocking hats is invaluable. Without his assistance I would not be able to complete hat orders as quickly as we do.

He has an excellent knowledge of hats and often looks after the shop on his own.

He also looks good dressed as a WW2 American! www.militarycostumehire.co.uk

Thank you Richard.

The Bee Keeper Photo Shoot
The Sunflower Hat
Behind the scene photographs
After months of preparation our photo shoot entitled The Bee Keeper took place.
Having bought a jar of local honey from a bee keeper and a honeycomb the ideas of making hats for a photoshoot came flooding in within a few minutes. I quickly asked a friend of mine who is an amazing corsetiere to make a corseted dress. Lyndsey very quickly designed the most beautiful outfit. 
The collaboration started 5 months ago, lots of ideas and lots of sewing. Yesterday we had the most enjoyable day in a Shawn's studio.


Lyndsey preparing our model for the shoot.
Love the expression of Giorgia's face.

1920's Cloches, So Very Downton Abbey.

Cloche HatsAutumn/Winter Collection 2016/17With a few of our favourite designs
To have creative people around me continuously is wonderful. One of my very creative friends is Pasquale Vaira. As a photographer he loves to create an usual scene, his photographs tell a story, From weddings to fashion he loves to demonstrate his imagination through his images, which at times has no bounds.
I enjoy designing hats for him to use in his work. Here are a few of the 1920's photos from his recent photo shoot at a disused railway station. If only the station could tell it's stories of life in the 1920's, There are probably some very interesting historical tales to tell!
