Amy Johnson is the founder of Miss Millinery, a millinery service based in London. After graduating from London college of Fashion in 2006, Amy worked in the theatre and film industries for such prestigious institutions as The National Theatre and Angels The Costumiers. This experience gave her the opportunity to develop her millinery skills and she currently works on mixed and varied projects, ranging from the most diminuitive of fascinators to very large theatrical headdresses. She offers a bespoke service and also sells her pieces through her Etsy shop.
Katty Janneh is a milliner based at the reputable Cockpit Arts studios in Deptford, South London. After working for several years in fashion and retail, Janneh set up her company, Katty Janneh Millinery, in late 2002. She designs and produces a wholesale collection, as well as offering a bespoke service and a bridal line.
Janneh’s work includes vintage influences, though she keeps the range modern by using luxurious satins and silks, combined with quirky trimmings and antique finds to create a sophisticated selection of hats headpieces. “I often dye my own colours to achieve subtle elegant shades to vibrant colour combinations,” she says. Her stockists have included Selfridges, The British Hatter and Fashion-Enter, and she has also worked with boutiques and designers (including Matthew Wiliamson) to produce accessories for their stores and catwalk shows.
