Fiona Menzies is the founder of Fifilabelle, a London-based producer of fine handmade hats. Fiona studied fine art and worked as an illustrator and a painter before receiving formal training in millinery.
The gallery of hand-made hats on the Fifilabelle website features many examples of stunning workmanship and attention to detail. The hats shown on the website are mostly designed with a fairly streamlined base, and some have details added for a look that’s flamboyant but not overpowering. With designs that include bright feathers, jeweled accents and fishnet veils, these hats all have a certain vintage-style appeal that would be lovely for any formal occasion or party.
Working out of a home studio, Fiona creates premade hats, as well as working on custom commissioned designs for clients. If you have a picture in your head of a beautiful hat you’d like designed, you can contact Fiona by the email address or phone number listed on the Fifilabelle website!
