At Beverley Edmondson Millinery, our mission is to make you look and feel fantastic for the big occasions in your life. Whether you are a seasoned hat wearer or a hat novice, we will guide you through the magical world of millinery. Our team have a wealth of millinery, styling and colour knowledge and experience, ensuring that the headwear, accessories and style that you desire can be made a reality.
You can find us in the market town of Farnham, on the bustling high street amongst an array of independent retailers. Upon walking into store you will be greeted by an Aladdin’s cave of colour and texture, often described as walking into a sweet shop for adults! We welcome you into our world of hats, fascinators, scarves, wraps, jewellery, hair accessories, dyeable shoes and clutch bags.
During January and February, the shop will be open to the public 10.30am-4.30pm Monday to Friday and 10am-5pm Saturdays, We also have our enhanced private 1-2-1 appointments available.
These appointments, which are pre-bookable, will be available at 9.30am and 4.30pm – 7pm,Tuesday – Friday and 9am and 5pm on Saturdays, although we recommend booking during daylight hours to ensure a true colour match for your chosen outfit.
Our new enhanced appointment service offers a truly unique experience for those planning a special occasion. While we do stock pre-made designs, our enhanced appointments allow you to create something truly bespoke to perfectly reflect your individuality and personality. Working directly with our chief milliner, Beverley, we can conceive and create the perfect finishing touch to your chosen outfit so that every detail is just right.
While we advise enhanced appointments to make the most of a bespoke millinery experience, you are, of course, still most welcome to also walk in during our public opening hours to enjoy our services and products pret-a-porter.
We are also excited to announce the launch of our new luxury lifestyle sister brand, 27b! Shop now for a range of beautiful hats, jewellery, scarves, bags, candles and more, all designed, made or curated by Beverley.
Beverley Edmondson Millinery has now been established for 9 years, with our Farnham boutique opening in spring 2010. Having trained with some of the world’s best milliners, Beverley has made hats for film, television and a certain royal wedding. Our boutique has been nominated for several awards including Niche Fashion Retailer of the Year by Drapers in both 2015 and 2016 and won not only the London and South East Accessory Designer of the Year 2017, but also the overall National Winner for Accessory Designer of the Year 2017, after receiving highly commended in 2016 for the Wedding Industry Awards with the judging based on customer feedback voting and submission of products. Beverley Edmondson Millinery’s designs regularly feature in national and international fashion pages and blogs.
Beverley is one of the founding members of Farnham’s retailer group, Fabulous Farnham. Fabulous Farnham promotes Farnham’s high street, retailers and community. Beverley also works both locally and as part of national future highstreets projects. As a natural development Beverley offers business coaching and mentoring for creative and independent retail businesses to adapt for the changing landscape of the high street retail environment and to support milliners hoping to launch their own atelier or label.
Beverley Edmondson Millinery has recently been approved as an official supplier for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal after the extensive campaigns the boutique has run every autumn, raising large amounts for the charity over the last 6 years.
In her spare time, Beverley is currently enjoying designing and decorating her cottage and spending time with her puppy.
Ali has been with us for 5 years and is now head of alterations. She can be found in the shop on Tuesdays and Fridays busily perfecting all your headpieces and undertaking the smaller commissions. She spends the rest of the time raising her young family. Ali recently received 100% in a mystery shopping experience offered through Farnham Town council for her knowledge of our services and high level of customer service.

Charley has only been with us a few months but is a website wizz! She beavers away behind the scenes to make sure our blogs are written and go live and that everything is up to date! The rest of the time she is studying for her masters degree in Journalism.
Jayne (otherwise known as Mum) is the queen of admin and the shop floor. She always knows what is going on and is fabulous at keeping everything in order. When she’s not in the shop she can be found taking mini breaks with Beverley’s Dad (aka the maintenance department) and dancing.
We look forward to welcoming you to Beverley Edmondson Millinery.
