Melissa says:  I have been passionate about textiles since I was a child and have always enjoyed designing and creating. Whilst doing my A Levels in textiles after having my family, I discovered millinery. My final exam piece was to make a celebratory headpiece and I chose to reproduce the cloche that my great grandmother wore for her wedding in 1926.  I studied at the Leeds College of Art and Design and gained an HNC in millinery.

My designs are a fusion of vintage and offbeat styling. I put my heart and soul in to each piece that I create.  I only use luxurious materials and make every piece by hand.
