Remember when Victoria Beckham wore a fascinator to David's MBE ceremony back in 2003? She seemed to spark a millinery frenzy. Well it was around the same time that trained architect Monique Luttin relocated from Melbourne, Australia to London. She set about a career change, transferring her architectural skills into fashion and producing cutting-edge millinery creations.
Since launching in 2007, Monique Luttin Millinery is fast becoming a household name in London. Her headpieces are acclaimed for successfully merging on-trend fashion with classic appeal. Designs feature striking colour schemes and oh so pretty accents; dipped in lime green, aqua blue and softer hues - adorned with feathers, ruffles, flowers and lace. In my opinion, Monique's millinery work is truly charming. I especially love the pillbox designs and cocktail hats that frame the face without overpowering.
The ready to wear pieces for hire and bespoke millinery designs are high in demand. And with the recent launch of her new bridal collection and DIY workshops, Monique Luttin is definitely one to watch in 2009.
Whether you're looking for the perfect hat to complete your party outfit or you're getting ready to wow at the races, be sure to enlist the expertise of Monique Luttin.
