At Annabel Allen Millinery we specialise in creating one-off bespoke designs, working directly with the client to understand your style, time frame and price point to ensure that we achieve the finest results. Consultations can be held either at our Bristol studio, over the phone or online (skype or email). Please contact us to enquire.
After we have agreed upon the design you will be kept up-to-date with the progress of your piece via photographs which will be emailed to you throughout the construction; therefore if it is not possible to visit the studio for a fitting you will still be able to make sure you’re completely happy with your piece before completion.
If you would like us to incorporate fabrics from your outfit in the design of your piece we would be more than happy to do so. We also offer colour-matching as part of our bespoke service; applying hand-dying techniques to make sure that your hat will uniquely compliment your outfit*
Designs from our ready-to-wear collections can also be made in different colours or using your own fabrics; please contact us to enquire.
Once a bespoke order has been placed we require a 50% deposit in order to start making your item. We estimate a 3-4 week turn around before dispatch, however, if your order is urgent please contact us; where possible we will always try to accommodate your time frame.
* To achieve the best results for colour matching we strongly advise that you provide a sample of the original fabric; whether it be an item of clothing or a scrap of the fabric. Please be aware that different fabrics vary in the amount of light they reflect, thus altering the appearance of the colour; hence colour matches cannot always be exact.
