My Hat with Loulou Bricole

A couple of weeks ago I spent a wonderful day with milliner Linda Gruet. Not only is she an amazing designer, she's a lovely person and great fun to be with - and she's a great cook too!

It was an intensive learning experience in a relaxed atmosphere, and I brought home a hat which I am in love with. It doesn't get any better!




I love Linda's elegant style with its vintage twist, and importantly her designs are wearable. Check out her website - Loulou Bricole Couture Millinery to see some of her stunning work.
