Virna is a milliner with an intense passion and pride for her craft, a sensualist feel for fabrics and form with a meticulous and prophetic eye for detail and trends.
After growing up between the majesty of Rome and serenity of Tuscany Virna worked for a number of local theatre groups before coming to the UK to complete and perfect her studies after which she soon found herself working with eminently influential milliners such as Phillip Treacy and Piers Atkinson and being ingratiated into the world of contemporary fashion design before going onto work in the world of film and theatre with Rizvi Millinery Thehatricks on award-winning global productions such as Disney’s Lion King and Aladdin and then founding her own company working on shows such as Katy Perry’s 2017 Glastonbury performance.
Working within such a theatrical and diverse arena creating for models, performers and musicians has naturally inspired her ranges, with each piece having a personality, a story and a role to play, no matter how subtle, discrete, loud or proud. Whether creating unique one-off show pieces or themed ranges for wedding ensembles, every hat, fascinator and accessory is uniquely inspired and lovely hand crafted, encapsulating Virna’s broad technical and creative expertise. Each piece is bespoke and made to order using the best quality materials. Please allow four to six weeks for design, sampling and production although designs shown here can be supplied much sooner.
