Hi , I'm Roz of Sophia Jane Millinery based in Essex where I live with my two daughters and two Maine Coon cats.
I've always been a great lover of fashion and all things handmade and beautiful. I'm a true believer in wearing something that makes you feel confident and amazing.
My interest in hats and fascinators began, watching my mother who is an opera singer dress in her amazing costumes and hats, and then when I co ordinated large events and exhibitions in my early career.
I trained at the Royal School of Needlework and in soft furnishings in Hampton Court Palace where I learnt a huge amount about attention to detail and designing. My love for these traditional techniques led me to millinery where I can combine all the things I love into beautiful creations and am completely self taught. I love adding those special details of beading, feather work, hand made silk flowers or embroidery creating unique bespoke pieces.
I get the most enjoyment from my work when I see clients looking so beautiful and happy wearing one of my pieces and love when they win in a best dressed competition of the races!
