Bee Smith Millinery, established in 2010, designs and makes hats and headpieces for every occasion from Ascot, through to weddings, Christenings and Royal Investitures.
Bee Smith’s studio is based in Kingston, Surrey, where she welcomes clients for individual styling.
Her collections capture nostalgic glamour with hats to suit English elegance, with just a hint of eccentricity.
Bee Graduated with BA(Hons) in Fashion Design from Winchester School of Art in 2007.
Bee worked for a variety of designers including Felder Felder, Sophie Malig and Hardy Amies before studying Millinery design at Kensington and Chelsea College.
Her interest in sustainable and ethical fashion developed in her final year at Winchester and this has underpinned her present work.
She sources vintage materials including silk from World War II parachutes, antique lace from Parisian markets and vintage sari silk from India to add to the uniqueness of her collections.
Bee’s work has been featured in Vogue Germany, The Telegraph, The Times, ITV’s ‘This Morning’, Brides, InStyle, Company, Look, Bust (USA) and more.
