In pursuit of Hat Based Happiness
Ellie expressed an interest in hats from an early age, donning her Granny’s floral tea cosy whenever it was left within arms’ reach. After five years in a ‘proper job’ in the city, in 2012 she decided enough was enough and moved back from London to the green pastures of the Midlands, setting up EleanorLucy Millinery and pursuing happiness via hats.
Working from her home-based studio in Wolston, Ellie has built up several collections, as well as offering a bespoke commission service.
Tutored by the legendary Rose Cory, Royal milliner to the late Queen Mother, Ellie combines traditional techniques and the highest quality materials with playful experimentation to create beautiful hand sewn headwear with hattitude.
From elegant tipped brims which perfectly complement Mother of the Bride outfits, to whimsical silk origami flora and fauna, and perching showstoppers designed to turn heads at the races, EleanorLucy Millinery designs will make you feel glamorous, individual and comfortable, whatever the occasion.
