#tbt to the days when I worked for Royal Milliner John Boyd in Knightsbridge. As you can see the workroom was a crazy creative hub and attached to this is the beautiful showroom full of over 200 hats! Part of my job was to advise and help customers find the perfect hat to suit them and the special occasion. I loved this aspect of my role and learnt so much about what suits different people and the shapes, angles and balance that made a truly great hat!
And yes i am wearing the copy I made of the petal teardrop shape on the dummy head 🙂 #training #milliner #trade #craft #traditionalskills #hats #ellievallerinihats #johnboydhats
