Life is much more fun with a hat
I am Rita – the creative soul and the skilled hands behind RUBINA Millinery. I truly believe that a hat can make you feel special whatever the occasion – wedding day, race event, garden party or a relaxing day at the beach. You can certainly live without ever trying on a single hat but life is much more fun wearing a hat.
I love creating something with my hands and my creative curiosity has lead me to learn all kinds of handwork till finally I found my love of life – MILLINERY.
I am convinced that a hand crafted hat is something special. Hand made hat stands for:
- quality – creating a hat requires time, patience and a lot of skill an attention to detail. I use only quality materials so that your hat that looks great and lasts for years.
- beauty – nothing compares to hand-made silk flowers, beaded lace or hand-cut and shaped feathers.
- uniqueness – made specially for you to suit your individual needs – size, colour, trimming detail etc. All hats are meticulously crafted in my small millinery studio.
I combine traditional couture millinery techniques with contemporary hat making methods to create beautiful, skilfully crafted hats and headpieces. I am very grateful to my teacher Rose Cory, late Queen Mother’s milliner, for showing me the couture techniques of this craft to create hats and fascinators fit for royalty.
The designs for my hats and fascinators are inspired by feminine beauty and timeless elegance. I combine elegant, classic shapes with intricate handmade details. In my collection you will find hats and headpieces for special occasions – weddings, christenings, garden parties, photo shoots, race events – as well as casual hats for every day. You can choose from the hats in my online shop or order a unique bespoke hat.
The name “RUBINA Millinery” is a combination of my family name and the word “ruby”. So are my millinery pieces – hand made jewels for the precious moments in your life.
