Milliner. Hatter. Bonnet beautician. Fedora Fancier. I go by many names. Mostly, though, people call me Claire Strickland, and ask me to make bespoke hats and headpieces for them.

My hats and headpieces have starred in theatres, films, operas and pantomimes. At public events and corporate promotions. In the last few years I have worked for The Globe, English National Opera, Dr Who and Secret Cinema.

My speciality hat? I love any kind of challenge, but my eyes get especially bright when clients say things like ‘sculptural’, ‘outlandish’ and ‘historical’ to me. Have a look at my Tudor French hoods and Moon headdress to see what I mean.

If you like my hats, it’s easy to keep in touch. Simply join my mailing list, or look for me on twitter, facebook, instagram or pinterest – you can find all the information in the footer of every page of the website.
