With just a couple of weeks to go were looking back over the last 10 years of Ascot Hats & Fascinators..

There is one thing you can definitely depend upon is that everyone pulls out all the stops when it comes to its hats & fascinators!

I’ve searched the internet to bring you my favorite hats & fascinators from the last 10 years of Ascot..

I think as the years have progressed the hats & fascinators have become rather more classy.. they are of course expected to be big but the hats & fascinators themselves have become more delicate and intricate in style..

This Year I’m expecting to see more detailed craft work in all of the hats & fascinators in attendance!

Once again I have loads of hats & fascinators gracing the heads of my fabulous clients this year who I shall be hopefully bumping into in and around the Ascot Enclosures!

We are still taking orders but not for much longer so please get your Ascot hat & fascinator orders in asap!

All of our hats and fascinators are custom made to order in your choice of colours..

We offer a full bespoke service for those looking for a unique and individually designed hats or fascinator and as many of our clients would tell you that we have always worked hard with clients to ensure they receive the perfect hat or fascinator and that it matches and compliments their outfit perfectly.

See you there!!!


Creating the perfect Bespoke Fascinator is something that I pride myself at doing well and so far I’ve been really successful at getting just right.. even if it takes several tries!!

Each Bespoke Fascinator is completely unique and individual in every way and clients have a fixed idea about how their bespoke fascinator should look once its finished so I make sure we get as much information as possible about the bespoke fascinator and pictures always help.

I recently designed a bespoke fascinator for Dr Nyla Raja, Cosmetic surgeon to the rich and famous and star of Real Housewives of Cheshire!

Nyla had a very a specific bespoke fascinator in mind and sent through various photo’s with the main design inspired by this fabulous Stephen Jones fascinator..

Nyla also wanted a  bespoke fascinator that included gold butterflies of various sizes included so we set about coming up with a design.

The base of her bespoke fascinator was made entirely from sculptured wood which captured the twig affect of the original stunning headpiece..

We then decided on the type of flowers.. I felt that Roses would look marvelous and add depth. Each of the roses is handmade (yes it does take forever) and wired butterflies have been mixed in on white wire.

All of my bespoke fascinators are sculptured and built up intricately so that the whole fascinator is held together to avoid breakage.

Here are some of the pictures of the bespoke fascinator as it developed.

This was a particularly complex bespoke fascinator but we were both thrilled with the results and I think the headpiece looked amazing! Nyla looked simply stunning at Chester Races last week.

If your looking for a specific bespoke fascinator than look no further, I’m always looking for my next challenge and I will work closely with you to make sure I create the perfect bespoke fascinator for you!

Well, we know you all know and love our fabulous ‘Cara’ Couture fascinator, it has this year been our favourite and yours as well judging by the reaction we get every time someone see’s it!!

I was contacted last week by Brides Magazine which as most of you know is the largest wedding/bridal magazine in the Country. They asked to use our fascinator in their next photo shoot!! Of course I jumped at the chance, another opportunity to work with the Vogue Crew always gets a thumbs up from me!
