Irish born milliner Valerie Wyvill did not find her way into the world of hat making in the most traditional manner. Working as a primary school teacher in Co. Kildare, Ireland also known as ‘Land of the Horse’, led her to many race events complete with glamour and exquisite millinery. Struggling to find hats to compliment and flatter her own style, she altered and adorned hats with her own creative touch, developing her own individualistic flare.
Professionally trained by Irish, British & Australian milliners, Valerie is the founder and creative director of Valerie Millinery Collections based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
A luxury wear millinery brand that handcrafts original designs using traditional millinery techniques and the highest quality materials.
Valerie offers a bespoke service where designs can be customised to match and compliment specific outfits as well as her ready-to-wear collection.
