I design and create beautiful handmade hats, fascinators and hair accessories for any occasion! Whether you need to upstage the horsey set at the Kentucky Derby, outfit your fashion-forward bridal party, or simply put the finishing touches on your kick-ass ensemble, I have a hat, fascinator or hair accessory to match your style.


My custom creations – anything from felt hats, to crazy headdresses to tiny hand pressed and painted flowers - are lovingly pieced together in my tiny studio in Toronto, Canada.  I take my inspiration from everything I see, and from my varied interests in everything from punk rock/goth couture, to Japanese Shibori dying techniques, to cooking delicious desserts.  But I can also take inspiration from my clients through commissioned custom orders – I can work with you to make your millinery dreams a reality.


My items are fabricated by hand using traditional millinery techniques and quality materials.  Some of these materials are vintage items that I've sourced from all sorts of nooks and crannies; this makes my pieces either one of a kind or limited editions.


If you like what you see, but the colour just isn’t right, or if you are looking for something custom-made in a specific style, please let me know. I love custom orders and would love to make something special just for you!!
