Feathers & Bows Couture Millinery is an established brand of beautifully created and affordable millinery for chic modern women.
All F&B millinery is designed and meticulously hand crafted in the F&B work studio. Each piece is carefully created with attention to detail and finishing touches, using only high quality materials. The process of creating couture millinery involves using a combination of traditional and modern millinery skills and techniques, as well as some that are unique to F&B.
F&B millinery designer has a background of study and qualifications in art and the history of art, architecture and sculpture, a passion for the history of fashion and millinery combined with a love of the whole creative process, crafting by hand and working with colour, textiles and a whole range of other mediums.
All F&B millinery is hand crafted from start to finish, this includes blocking the shapes by hand and dyeing materials, it can be a very lengthy and time consuming process depending on the design being created – unlike factory made, which are mass produced hats and fascinators and are made for a fraction of the cost. Couture millinery is therefore more costly and cannot compete with the mass produced market. This is something that many people will not be aware of, but there is a huge difference between mass produced and made by hand couture millinery. The advantage of buying couture millinery is the high quality of craftsmanship and the originality and uniqueness of the design.
F&B has seasonal collections of READY TO WEAR designs that can be purchased directly from F&B website and F&BONLINE SHOP. Customers may also order any of the designs in their choice of colours or with some adjustment or alteration to the design, which is fine.
F&B also offers a selection of CUSTOM MADE TO ORDER designs. These are a mix of F&B signature designs, new designs and popular customer favourite designs. They are made to order in any colours and with any additions or alterations customers request.
F&B specialises in BESPOKE MILLINERY designs, which enables you to have a special and totally unique bespoke piece of millinery designed to compliment your outfit, be a perfect colour match and suit your individual personality and sense of style.
