Hat Travel TIPS

DSC_4117crop

“Are your hats ‘packable’?” a frequent question from my customers… the answer is: “YES” I construct all my natural fibre hats with a sturdy, reinforced fabric brim which can be folded and bent into many configurations for packing.

Island Vogue on Granville Island

IV1920

Several years ago the Net Loft on Granville Island showcased the work of Island artists with a fashion event called Island Vogue. Silk artist Heide Otto and I collaborated to create these outfits for the show. Special projects like this are always a challenge as it pushes artists out of their ‘comfort zones’ into a new level of creative thinking and skill-testing. We had a lot of fun with the process, and loved the results, especially … Read More →

pink brown

Regardless of what stories you tell yourself, sometimes a little open-mindedness and ‘hattitude’ go a long way.
