Vintage couture is a great inspiration to Maree. Whenever possible, antique items are used in each bespoke vintage inspired millinery piece, be it a hat or fascinator.
Maree loves vintage millinery, and so should you, it’s such an easy way to be part of the glamour of a bygone era without actually having to time-travel! An era when hats were all the rage and you were practically tripping over high quality hat makers and milliners.
When it comes to hats there’s some truth in the old adage that “they don’t make things like they used to”. Hats available in large chain stores are often cheaply made overseas, mass produced and may never have been near a milliners studio. A modern, vintage inspired hand-made or couture piece is another story though!
Buying vintage and re-using and repurposing beautiful hats of the past is also a more environmentally conscious approach to fashion, something Maree takes pride in.
Perhaps you have an item to use in a custom design? Maree will happily work it into your unique headpiece. It might be a brooch of a loved one, a loved earring that has lost its pair or a treasured heirloom.
There is a little vintage flair in each Dezignz by Maree headpiece. A little 40s, 50s or 60s creep into every millinery creation.
