I have a big interest in both fashion & hat design, which is displayed in my design where you can see that I have an understanding of modern and classic design. One of the big inspirations in the making is the material itself; it can be the colour, the pattern or the texture. The passion is the craftsmanship – I push my choices of material to create a sculptural hat or headpieces. My hat design span from elegant evening headpiece to a playful contemporary hat both which are to be worn as the final piece to tie an outfit together.

As all my hats is one of a kind, and I now only do custom made hats by request, and to different events and projects, the fist meeting is essential for us both. For me it's a plus if you before the first meeting can have a look for what you are aiming for in design. It can be a model or shape of a hat that you really like, but maybe
has had its best days, and you just want a new one. After the first meeting I sketch up the idea, find material that works with the style, and then give a price for the model.
For every client it usually takes 2-3 fittings before the hat is ready for delivery.
