About Me

Creative Director & Owner

Finale 1.jpg

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 combined her design talents & love of hats to create her own.


Professionally trained by Irish, British & Australian milliners, Valerie is the founder and creative director of Valerie Millinery Collections based in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.

A luxury 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 & hat hire collection.
