Nicola's passion for millinery has stemmed from her love of hats and pleasure from being creative. With sewing skills passed onto her from her grandmothers she studied traditional millinery techniques with Janie Lashford and more recently with Jane Taylor in London. Her hats and headpieces are beautifully crafted using traditional techniques to create individual headwear of exceptional finish and quality. Working from her home-based studio and hat shop situated in the village of Bassingham between Lincoln and Newark, she offers a personal service designing and creating headwear from a choice of luxurious fabrics, colours and styles, perfect for each individual and occasion.
Nicola also stocks a wide range of ready to wear hats for immediate sale and hire. In additional to her own designs & creations, the collections include carefully selected pieces sourced solely from British suppliers. Headwear from this collection is on display in Nicola's studio shop and may also be purchased on-line. Should you like a style of hat shown in this collection but in a different colour than currently stocked, then it may be possible to order this in for you. Alternatively you may like to consider the Custom-made option.
For those looking for something spectacular, in addition to her custom-made service Nicola also stocks a high-end range of exquisite and unique headwear which includes limited edition pieces from the Vivien Sheriff Couture collection.
