Last week me and Ritza popped into The Little Hattery and being big fans of fabulous hats and fascinators, we wanted to get an exclusive behind the scenes look of the magic that goes into making a hat!
Kerry Hillier and Dominik Marszalek are the amazing milliners at The Little Hattery and we have spotted their creations at the L'Ormarins Queens Plate, J&B Met, Durban July and on the runways of designers such as Gavin Rajah. They are also the exclusive providers of hats for the famous Madame Zingara and I'm sure most of you have spotted their creations at the show! We had the opportunity to discuss with them how The Little Hattery came about and what it journey it has been so far for these creative entrepreneurs!
They started their journey at the Vaudeville in Cape Town, selling little hats that Kerry made in their flat and sold for as little as R100! These little hats also inspired the name of their company and became more and more popular as they expanded their business to markets all over the country. To make a long story short, they decided to keep their hats exclusive and open up a little store in town and just when they were about to give up, their phone started ringing off the hook with orders streaming in and the rest as they say is history!
Most of us think that hats are unaffordable and too exclusive, but what makes the Little Hattery so amazing is the fact that you can go to them with your budget and they will help you create an amazing hat with what you have to spend! With one of the biggest horse racing event taking place soon - the Durban July - make sure you get to The Little Hattery to create the perfect posh hat for this affair!
Thank you to Kerry and Dominik for having us and our readers can expect to see another post on the process of designing a hat at The Little Hattery very soon!
