Charity Chapeau

When I was contacted by the girls at Vintage Amours to help promote this fund-raiser, they couldn't have picked anything more appealing to me.  I think it is a wonderful idea and combines my passions of making things, with my love of vintage glamour and raises funds for a good cause at the same time.

It sounds like a perfect way to spend the day and I'm busy trying to organise someone to come with me and someone to babysit so I can go along.

Stand out of the crowd and make your own cocktail hat with Vintage Amours.

Whether you’re a stay at home mum looking for a fun filled girly evening or a new graduate wanting to leave your work at the office - this beginners workshop is definitely for you!

No experience is needed our experienced Amour Girl Charlotte will be there to guide you. An experienced milliner working with the renowned Jenny Packham, Stephen Hakes and Marchesa she is currently designing a range of fascinators for a London accessories designer, Anjili Shah on the internationally famous South Molton Street. 

With Charlotte you’ll learn basic millinery techniques to keep for life as well as making your very own cocktail hat that you’ll be able to treasure forever!
