Jayne Elizabeth Millinery
Jayne Elizabeth Millinery offers a bespoke hat making service and each individual piece has my complete attention to detail. All items are crafted here in the Oxfordshire studio using traditional millinery techniques.
Consultations are informal and in relaxed surroundings, to which you are encouraged to bring your outfit(s). You will have the opportunity to try on different hat and fascinator shapes to get a ‘feel’ for the type of style you prefer. You can choose a design from my extensive collection, or alternatively you may decide to have your personality demonstrated in your own unique creation!
At Jayne Elizabeth Millinery beautiful high quality fabrics are used for all pieces: silk, organza, felt, satin, lace, straw and sinamay. By offering a dyeing and colour matching service you can ensure the perfect colour match for an event. There are endless design opportunities available with various trims and embellishments such as; vintage jewels, veiling, silk flowers, feathers and beadwork.
Millinery is an art form- a fusion of fashion, sculpture and art, with the emphasis on the proportion and balance of the hat. As a milliner you have to be able to think in a three dimensional way, always ensuring that your creation is well proportioned and also fits correctly.
Inspiration for designing hats and headpieces can come from a wealth of sources, ranging from organic forms found in nature to the rigid geometric structures of architecture. Vintage and historical shapes can also offer many exciting design opportunities, and styles can be adapted and re-created, for example by adding a contemporary twist.
Lead time for bespoke pieces between 5-6 weeks. However, please do contact me with any last minute orders and I will endeavour to fulfil your requirements.
I also offer a world-wide delivery service.
