A bespoke hat, designed with a particular event in mind, is something many people long for but often feel is price prohibitive. In this fabulous new book, couture milliners, Lomax & Skinner, show that this need not be the case. With clear and comprehensive step-by-step-instructions and photography, Sarah Lomax and Rachel Skinner, show readers how to make 12 very different hats for a variety of occasions, including a wool felt trilby, a chic pillbox, a fascinator and a feathered headband.
The materials and equipment that are required are fully detailed, along with all the necessary techniques, enabling the reader to adapt the designs if they wish, or to create their own unique hats. Full of inspirational and instructional photography, this beautifully designed book truly showcases this wonderful craft and provides all the know-how in order to achieve high-end, couture results at home.
Sarah Lomax and Rachel Skinner have been making hats for over 20 years since serving their apprenticeships together with Frederick Fox, the Queen’s milliner. Rachel’s designs were regularly featured in magazines such as Vogue, Tatler, Harpers & Queen and Elle, and she created memorable pieces for members of the Royal Family and for some of the world’s most influential fashion icons and stars including Kate Moss, Mick Jagger and Gwen Stefani. The pair’s new 2013 venture, Lomax & Skinner, is a partnership based on a shared love of fashion and design and a long established friendship.
