We want to tell you about our favourite milliners and hatters first, then everyone else who has contributed to the making of our shop and website. We have listed everyone in alphabetical order (of first name or brand).
Unlike previous editions of this website, we have decided this time to eschew lists of celebrities who have worn each designer’s creations or publications that have featured them. This is partly because the lists get too unwieldy and long and need frequent updating that’s better suited to social media. Attention-attracting headwear that enhances the wearer’s appearance and creates a more memorable look is, of course, celebrity catnip! And we have ourselves contributed to putting hats/headpieces on many well known heads.
Here, then, are the designers whom we most admire:
House of Flora
J Smith Esquire
My Bob, use your head
Ward & Wylie
