Business Description – what do you do?
I design and make hats for ladies attending special occasions, my main market is weddings. Clients book an appointment to come to my hat atelier. We start with the outfit and then I advise and guide my customer on the most appropriate headwear for the occasion.
I also offer styling advice on what options my customer should choose to finish the look by recommending colour and style for their shoes and bag.
Once the hat is ordered the creation begins, I usually advise one to two fitting before the hat is complete.
