H’ATELIER congratulates everyone who took part in the Olympics, and who are about to take part in the Paralympics – you are all amazing!
LOVEHEART HAT TURNS HEADS….
The international response to this hat (specially commissioned by Swizzels Matlow) has been most gratifying, and a lovely reward for the challenge involved in making it!
This is, admittedly, something of a novelty hat, and we’re so pleased that several Royal Enclosure guests chose us to create hats for them. Photos of clients wearing the hats will follow, but in the meantime here’s a taster:
TODAY’S THE DAY!
Our warm congratulations to Rita and Dennis as they finally tie the knot.
H’atelier is thrilled to have been so involved in the Big Day – it has been a genuine pleasure working with Barbara Knox to create her
PERFECT WEDDING HAT
In a rare interview on ITV’s This Morning, the actress, Barbara Knox, said ” we have the most wonderful milliner in Manchester“

The weather’s awful, the news is dire and not much seems right with the world, so here’s something to make you smile….
See? You feel better already, don’t you?
Here’s the way we’re thinking for the months ahead (and yes, it will get warmer…)
We’re working on “Pale and Interesting“, “Jungle Book“, “Neon City” and “Bloomin’ Flowers“. This is, of course, just a starting point and we may well end up with something completely different…..
Watch out for examples coming soon….
Thought you might like to see a few pictures of the lovely Kate when she came to the H’atelier showroom for her first consultation, with her stylist and make-up supremo, the utterly fabulous CHRISTOPHER RAINE , who was responsible for Kate’s spectacular appearance at the Royal Wedding. Kate was charmingly enthusiastic and had a great time trying on lots of hats
(Me in concentrated- and probably bossy- mode….)
(I find Kate’s expression in this one somewhat intimidating………….!)
Kate managed effortlessly to add a certain je-ne-sais-quoi to every hat she tried
And the final result :
FOR LACK OF HAT NEWS RECENTLY FROM H’ATELIER , disgraceful I agree.
Loads of Very Interesting Stuff has indeed been happening here in Hatland and I promise I’ll be updating things very soon
WATCH THIS SPACE….!
