The new collection from milliner Maggie Mowbray features 7 key pieces for the winter season ahead, from city style to classical country chic. The collection in rich colours of midnight, black and gold reflect those found in nature; stone, lichen and deep shadows produced in luxurious felts and textured woollens.
Maggie took an important decision to rebrand her company early this year, changing the company name of Tramp Millinery to Maggie Mowbray. Maggie felt that over the course of the past 2 years her focus had unequivocally changed. “The name Tramp originated as when I began my career I used recycled fabrics and trims with reclaimed costume jewellery. My focus is now on using luxurious fabrics with a strong emphasis on design and with many pieces being couture, I felt that the name Tramp no longer reflected my current vision.”
Who is the designer behind this emerging fashion label? Maggie originally studied fine art and became a milliner after having worked as an artist for many years, all while raising a young family. “Once the children were off to school I had lots of free time to be creative, I took a course in felt hat making and knew immediately I wanted to do this full time.” Over the following two years Maggie experimented with fabrics and read a wealth of her knowledge from constructing to fitting from old millinery teaching manuals. “I am my biggest critic, every trim and finish, down to the last stitch has to be seamless, hats should look like they are held together using only magic”.
