What to expect from a consultation at the studio.

What to expect from a consultation at the studio.


Our studio is located near Roscrea, Co. Tipperary and we are open by appointment. If you have a wedding or special event coming up and are looking for a beautiful headpiece to complete your look, we have a large selection to hire and also a range of Ready-to-Wear headpieces to purchase in the studio. 

We advise organising your appointment as early as possible in advance of the event date.


Before your appointment, we will send you directions, if required. 

We advise customers to bring their dress or ensemble together with shoes & accessories they intend wearing (if they have them). If the dress is being designed as a bespoke piece and is not yet available, bring a swatch of the fabric for colour matching.


Your appointment will be a private appointment as we always like to give each customer our full attention. However, please do feel free to bring along friends or family!


You can browse the headpieces we have available to purchase and also our hat hire collection. We advise trying on lots of headpieces and styles to see what shape suits you. We have a changing room and you can try on your entire look if you like. We will help you by selecting options we think would work well with your dress and shape.

There is no obligation to purchase or book a hat hire during your visit.


If you see a piece that suits in our Ready-to-Wear Collection, it will be carefully packaged for you in one of our luxury hat boxes. If you see a shape that you like but would like it in another colour, it may be possible to order a bespoke piece, depending on lead-in time (normally three months but may be longer at busier times).


If you wish to hire a headpiece from our hat hire collection, you can book it for your date. You will be required to pay the hire fee to secure your booking. Our hat hire pieces range from €30 to €60.

Contact the studio about a week before your event to arrange an appointment to collect your headpiece. 

All Hat Hire is subject to the payment of a refundable security deposit of €50 on collection which is refunded when the headpiece is returned . The return should be made on the next working day (unless otherwise agreed in advance).

We look forward to meeting you!
