The last week has been a whirlwind of emotions as we had to close the shop due the the government restrictions regarding the current Corona virus pandemic.
It is heartbreaking to close the doors, just a week before we hit our 10 year anniversary on the high street and as an event based seasonal business just as we would usually start to see the uplift to our peak season. With events now cancelled far into the summer, I fear it could take us a long time for the business to recover from this, it may mean big changes. But for now all we can do is do out bit and stay home to prevent the spread as much as we can.

Whilst looking through files on an old laptop recently, I came across, my Critical Study essay that I wrote as part of my HNC in Millinery at Kensington and Chelsea college. Dated as being written January 2006! The content of this essay still fascinates me and so I thought I would share it with the world!
N.B. I have not edited the content of this essay at all since it was written, so some elements or views may have changed over time. Also remember that it was written by an 19 year old me! Continue reading “The Fall of the Hat, and the Significance of Hat’s in Today’s Culture”

We’ve been a little late on blogging about our Autumn and Winter Millinery collection; It seems like so long ago since our photo shoot for the collection way back in March; so lets show you our winter hat designs, so you can start thinking about your winter style!
The weathers getting cooler and the fabrics and textures are getting richer! I love the colours and tones of Autumn and the options of fabrics that can be used in the winter season that you just can’t get away with in the summer, from felts with a pile like peach skin, boucle’s, velvet and rich metallic’s the textures are so plush and the depth of colours so warm and cosy, we always start looking forward to working on the winter collections.

It’s taken a little time to write this blog, back in April when we shot the video the business was busy ramping up for the summer and we haven’t stopped since! So bar sharing on social media, we never really went behind the scenes or told you about the video.
We have had several videos done before which can all be found here: https://www.youtube.com/user/beverleyedmondson. But I really wanted to do one that showed you the customer what to expect when you come through the doors at Beverley Edmondson Millinery.

As winter is in full swing, we are already thinking ahead to our spring and summer collections 2019.
In fact, we finished and had the photoshoot of our spring summer 2019 millinery collection back in September. This allows us to get images to the long lead magazines early enough to be included in some of their shoots. We are excited to be working with our new PR Agency that we also appointed in September Goodley Bullen PR.
