Katherine the Designer & Milliner“To create a hat, is to create a piece of art.” "I take my inspiration from sculptural art, architecture and nature, pulling all of these elements together in my designs. Like a conceptual sculpture, no two of my designs are ever the same.To me, a hat isn’t something you should wear because you feel you have to. I design hats to empower and give confidence to the wearer. I believe every hat should be a sculpture that enhances both your features and your outfit." - Katherine Elizabeth
