So for those of you that follow my Facebook page, you will have seen LIVE that this week I had the opportunity to go and have a sneak peek at the new Bridal and ceremonial capsule collection by Giulia Mio.
Giulia Mio is an Italian, award winning couture milliner devoted to making hats and headpieces from the finest materials, with an immaculate finish. Her style is the result of a diverse mix of Art, Theatre and observation of the Nature.
She studied set and costume design in Venice and in Milan, and she learned millinery for haute couture and theatre between Rome, Milan and Zurich.
She has been trained as traditional milliner, but she is interested also in new techniques and innovative materials.
The bespoke hats and headpieces are sculptural and delicate, designed to flatter the face and proportioned to the person and whole outfit.
All of the pieces are entirely handmade by the designer and are made to order.
Below are some of the pieces available for purchase.
Above : Feather crown: hand trimmed ivory feathers on a headband, covered with ivory soft tulle for a more comfortable fit
Ivory and gold lace: Ivory silk and gold lace button fascinator, with hand made silk and gold lace peony and curled goose biots
Pink and ivory boater hat: Hand dyed parasisal straw boater hat, softly shaded from pale pink to ivory, with hand made silk peonies and hand died feathers.
Black, pewter grey and pearl grey coolie hat: pearl grey, pewter grey and black sinamay coolie hat on a satin head band, with diamond pattern silver grey crinoline trimming.
It was an absolute pleasure to see what goes on behind the scenes with Giulia...and I got to try on so many beautiful hats!!
Please contact Giulia directly for commissions.
