Spring is just around the corner, and Welsh milliner Robyn Coles is in demand. Check out these lovely hats from her 2013 spring collection, her second.
Coles began making hats for her friends in a spare room after she lost her day job. Less than a year later, at the London Fashion Week 2012, she made a splash debut by having nude models of various shapes, sizes, and ages -- including a very pregnant model -- parade her hats down the runway.
Despite being a creative milliner and having worked for some big names in fashion, Coles' college degrees are in politics and economics. Beneath the academic work, she had a strong need to express her creativity -- and lots of drive.
Coles recently opened up a hat studio and boutique in the Cardiff Castle Arcade (UK). According to her website, she can barely keep up with the orders for the spring collection.
I love the elegant simplicity of these hats. They just scream early spring, don't they, with their green backdrops and white flowers?
