Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved to dress up in hats...

She had a wide brimmed straw hat that she wore on sunny days, a floppy black velvet hat with roses on for everyday, and a large collection of different woolly bobble hats for the cold Scottish winter (and sometimes summer) weather. But her favourite hats were those found in her dressing up box... a red velvet pillbox with sumptuous amounts of feathers and veiling, a little black cocktail hat topped with a black satin bow and a wedding veil made from the softest ivory tulle fabric with gold stitching and pearls...

This little girl grew up, and as she did, her love of hats grew too. Eventually she decided to try her hand at making one herself... and Off With Her Head Millinery was born.

 

Off With Her Head Millinery was established as a business in May 2009. From that day on the business has been constantly evolving.  I'm always learning new skills and trying new things. I love creating eye-catching vintage inspired hats, fascinators and hair accessories that speak to your own quirky individual style. I specialise in alternative bridal wear; creating unique peaces to help you realise your amazing, alternative wedding day.

My designs have been featured in The Burlesque Bible, Alt Fashion Magazine, Coveted, and Devolution Magazine and I have written several articles on Millinery in Film and TV for Vintage Life Magazine.

My 2013 "Turning Japanese" collection, inspired by classical Japanese Art Styles debuted at the Nightwalk Fashion Show, in The Arches, Glasgow.

Since 2014 my hair flowers have been featured in the CBS crime drama "Criminal Minds" being worn regularly by Penelope Garcia (portrayed by Kirsten Vangsness).

I am a member of Shop Scotland; supporting small, independant businesses, artists and crafters from all across Scotland. I am currently a member of the KE Millinery & Business Academy.
