The Full Story
Lucy's millinery career started entirely by accident and is the classic case of a hobby turning into a business. Initially Lucy was self taught but she has since taken part in a number of online training courses provided by some very inspirational milliners from both the UK and Australia.
Lucy has a degree in Food and Agricultural Business and previously worked in the commercial sales teams of various large food manufacturing businesses.
After having her first little boy in 2019 Lucy decided that she wanted to follow her passion for millinery so her husband brought her a portacabin for Christmas which with the help of family they converted into a studio. This is where the dream really began.
Since opening the studio in March 2020 (and then heading straight into lockdown) Lucy has grown the business around her family and now offers a beautiful range of hire hats as well as bespoke creations.
What millinery means to Lucy
"I absolutely adore the art of millinery. It is like creating wearable sculptural works of art.
My aim is to create beautiful pieces that ladies feel confident and empowered in"
The lady behind the hats
As well as working in millinery Lucy is also a mother to her two gorgeous little boys and wife to James, a livestock farmer from South Warwickshire. Lucy loves to be outside on the farm with her dogs, horses and little boys.
"When I was a little girl I couldn't decide if I wanted to be a racehorse trainer or a fashion designer and while I haven't achieved either of these dreams I have managed to create a life which perfectly blends my love for fashion and the outdoors"
