The creation of your bespoke Heather Ogilvie Millinery hat is a partnership.  

Most people aren’t sure what they want – if this is you then the creation of your perfect design starts with our (without commitment or charge) meeting to discuss your event and look at your outfit.  In the privacy of my studio you can try on all shapes and sizes – the shapes that suit you best and make you feel wonderful and comfortable are identified.  After we’ve found that confidence inspiring shape or shapes we’ll start to think about colours and how to “trim” your hat so that it complements your personality and your outfit.  You can also let me know your budget.  After this first meeting I’ll usually sketch about three copyrighted designs for your consideration.  I’ll also let you know what my fee would be for sourcing materials and creating the design to your complete satisfaction.  At this stage you can either ask to progress with a design, or, without charge, you can decide not to progress.

Whether you are adventurous, focussed or nervous, Heather will provide guidance to make sure you truly find the right design for you and your occasion. 

As her customers’ testimonials suggest, whatever your concerns, outfit designs, head size, colour match requirements, you can be confident that Heather will go the extra mile to ensure your hat is perfect in every way.   

Aim to allow a minimum of four weeks for the design and creation of your bespoke head piece.
