On a sunny Saturday on the 24th March we had two very talented Irish milliners in the HH Boutique with us.

Aoife Harrison from Dublin and Wendy Louise Knight from Longford came to meet customers, chat about their designs and give styling tips and advice.

The event was a great success and the incredible work and creativity of these two milliners was very much admired.

Her eye-catching designs are crafted only from the most sumptuous fabrics, lending her palette of muted earth tones and jewel colours the most opulent of effects. Inspired by nature, and often incorporating natural materials, Aoife’s headpieces are always informed by a classic simplicity, paired with just the right measure of eccentricity.

Aoife’s designs have been seen worn by ladies at major Irish racing events, and have graced the pages of Ireland’s leading fashion publications, including Image, The Irish Times Magazine,  Social & Personal Magazine and The Sunday Times STYLE Magazine.

Wendy specialises in one-off, handcrafted designs ranging from theatrical large-brimmed showstoppers, in a range of fabrics embellished with beads and veiling, to the more subtle styles such as cloches, pillboxes, trilbies and fedoras. She has more than ten years experience and prides herself on being honest and helpful with her opinion. She has a vast range of materials to choose from and takes care to match colours as closely as possible at all times.

She loves to see her work worn by elegant women and has made pieces for customers from all walks of life from the high profile and famous to the more modest mothers and daughters we all know. Many of her hats have won prizes at race meetings.
