As a Hat Designer and Maker, she believes that it is of utmost importance that we do not see couture millinery disappear. Intrinsic to her ethos is the use of modern design with old couture techniques, each piece is hand blocked and individually hand stitched without the use of any machinery to obtain the highest quality finish.
Laura completed her Degree specialising in millinery at London College of Fashion and studied courses at Kensington and Chelsea College in theatrical millinery. She was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year 2012 from LCF, Laura was finalist of the New Era Introducing Baseball hat competition and her graduate collection has been featured on WGSN.
