F&B is always designing new styles to add to the F&B Collections of hats, fascinators and headpieces. All the designs shown on the website can be made to order in other colours or alternative materials, or be adapted to suit individual tastes.
However, if you are unable to find exactly what you’re looking for in the various sections of F&B website, why not consider having a unique ‘one-off’ original piece of millinery designed just for you.
F&B offers you a Bespoke Service
You are welcome to contact F&B by telephone or email to discuss your requirements.
Please email your details along with pictures of your outfit.
If you’re able to send in colour/fabric samples for F&B to colour match to, this is very helpful. But don’t worry if this isn’t possible.
We can discuss styles, designs, trims etc. Colour and fabric samples (once matched) will be sent to you, for matching against your outfit and so you can make sure you’re happy with them.
Once we have decided and agreed upon a design and time frame, a deposit will be required before work on your bespoke millinery commences. The final balance is due on completion of millinery.
Pictures will be emailed to you throughout the whole process for you to check how your piece of millinery is coming along and for you to give feedback and make any adjustments or changes. You’re included in the whole process. It’s a very easy and enjoyable process.
Cost of having a Bespoke piece of millinery custom made
Bespoke designs take a little longer to make due to the design work involved, on average please allow 3-6 weeks. This also allows for ordering the necessary materials, etc.
Prices for bespoke millinery will vary depending on the individual design. A quote will be given before work commences but often it is only possible to give guide prices. A deposit is required at time of booking a ‘Bespoke’ piece of millinery – 50% of estimated full price. Balance is due on completion.
F&B are happy to make changes, alterations or make additional trims, add materials etc to suit customers requests. However, any changes/additions made by the customer throughout the design process, that are additional and not included in the original quote, may/will be added on to the quote/price of the finished millinery piece.
