Mother of the Bride

A happy mother of the bride wearing a cocktail hat we designed together. At Adrienne Henry Millinery we frequently make hats and headpieces for 'mother of the bride', and thoroughly enjoy seeing photos of the wedding and the mother wearing her hat.  The base of this headpiece was made from sinamay and decorated with feathers, veiling and swarovski crystals. And the sun shone all day!

The Great Gatsby inspired Maroon cloche - 1920s style
Autumn & Winter  Hat
This is the second cloche in our La  Parisienne collection. Very similar to our last post but the cloche is in a different colour and slightly different in style. Each of our cloches are bespoke, two are never quite the same. Today we are working hard creating a new style for the next collection. La Parisienne will be on our newly revamped website within the next couple of weeks; http://www.adriennehenrymillinery.co.uk
The Parisienne collection will be available to buy on line. Each hat will be made to order and in a variety of colours.

The cloches are also available to buy every Tuesday and Wednesday at The Apple Market, Covent Garden London. Many different cloches, headpieces and hats we make are available to buy here.

1920s Orange & Black trimmed Cloche - Gatsby Inspired Hat

Gatsby inspired  wool cloches - 1920s style

A perfect hat for Autumn, Winter and Spring


Yesterday in My Little Hat Shop, Reading, Berkshire, England, we had a fantastic photo shoot. Mia, MECIFI Photography, Reading Berkshire, took the first photos for our La Parisienne Collection. The collection includes 1920s cloches, cloches with a twist and perching berets. The Great Gatsby has introduced the 1920s era to so many people. Cloches were worn both as day and evening wear. The collection will be on our newly revamped website within the next couple of weeks; http://www.adriennehenrymillinery.co.uk

The cloches are also available to buy every Tuesday and Wednesday at The Apple Market, Covent Garden London. Many different cloches, headpieces and hats we make are available to buy here.

The Mad Hatter Bridal Top Hat

The Mad Hatter Bridal Top Hat Last week In My Little Hat Shop, in Reading Berkshire, a lady came in and asked us to dress a top hat to compliment her wedding outfit. The dress she was going to wear was vintage with a floral print. The silk we used was the same colour as the majority of the roses. It was very pretty dress and the flowers we made were a perfect match to those on the dress. In the shop we have a selection of new and vintage silk top hats for sale. adriennehenry@hotmail.co.uk http://adriennehenrymillinery.co.uk

Black Fedora's, worn with style and very fashionable!

Fedoras for all seasons
Last night watch the last 10 minutes of the Voice on BBC1. There was Will I Am wearing a grey fedora. He clearly is a very fashion conscious man and loves wearing hats. Fedoras like the one Will I Am was wearing are a great fashion statement as well as very functional. They can be worn all year around. Even though they are made from 100% wool felt. I have sold to men taking them on holiday to the Caribbean, how hot is it there?   Fedoras can be worn by boys and men of any age, they also look good on ladies! We have a wide selection in the shop to choose from. — at Adrienne Henry Millinery.

Pink Bow Headpiece - Breast Cancer Awareness

Photography by  Mecifi Last year Lyndsey Clark (Lyndsey-Clark Boutique) and I collaborated to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness. In My Little Hat Shop I had a bra collection box. Ladies brought in their unwanted bras. As there we so many bras Lyndsey designed a beautiful corset dress using just 17 bras. I made the headpiece to represent the charity.. The bra dress was then auctioned to raise more funds. We both enjoyed the project and was very grateful to Mia for taking beautiful photographs for us.

1920s Cloche Hat with a Twist

The Great Gatsby The Great Gatsby has inspired many milliners around the world. We all enjoy watching films where hats and beautiful clothes are worn. The Great Gatsby is one of these films. At Adrienne Henry, we have enjoyed making cloches for three years, and even though it is Summer time these hat are very popular. Every Tuesday and Wednesday we sell them in The Apple Market, Covent Garden, London. Both our traditional and modern style with a twist are popular. Many tourists have come from all over the world and taken one home with them. Several Americans have mentioned there are no hats like this at home, maybe I need to export to the USA. Our cloches are made in many designs, colours and sizes.
