Living in Oz a hat has always been something of a necessity, rather than a fashion statement. However I was always fascinated by how they were made and was truly hooked after my first millinery class. I haven't looked back since!
I started this blog in February 2010 to share my collection of hats with other hat lovers. But I couldn't stop there I had to show events, fashion, craft, books and on occasion places to shop. As Perth's foremost hat blogger I try to keep the focus on hats, but something else always seems to crop up that I just have to blog about!
I was born and currently reside in Perth, Western Australia. I am committed to promoting Perth labels and supporting the local fashion industry.
I am the fashion editor for Perth online magazine, The Starfish. I have also featured as the guest blogger for the month of April, 2012 on the website We Love Perth, under the title Vintage Hat Affair.
I have a millinery/accessories label, 'Banks and Bell'. In April 2012 I showed a collection of headpieces in collaboration with fashion designer Fenella Peacock.
I hope that you enjoy reading my blog, please feel free to leave any feedback or comments. I would love to hear from you!
Lots of love,
