Milliner's creative process: what inspires Karen?

A sneak peek at Karen's latest moodboard: architectural details, Rococo headwear and 1950's fashion

You might think that January would be a quiet month in the studio - Quite the opposite! Karen is designing and prototyping the new collection for next winter (Autumn/Winter 2017-18) which will be called 'Two cities'. The collection will be shown in Paris for the trade show  Premiere Classe where we'll be exhibiting for the 10th year! The moodboard features:

-London and Paris architectural details and textures, with moody skies that have inspired the colour tones for the collection.

-Period fashion, headwear and hairstyles from the late eighteenth century, inspired by Charles Dickens' 'Tale of two cities'

-1950's couture fashion, as seen on the cover of Vogue

-The detailing from Savile Row tailoring, as a visual inspiration.
