Bonney

Like Coco Chanel, I too began my career as a milliner, a decision which was influenced by a visit to a book bazaar where I happened upon an archive publication of Victorian accessories.  The tattered periodical from the 1830’s which featured bonnets trimmed with ostrich feathers and faded silk flowers was an inspiring find.

Fascinated by textiles and the lavish embellishments of the early nineteenth century, I frequented antique fairs and sourced an enviable assortment of charming ribbons and vintage lace from “rare & collectibles”.

It was indeed these treasured collectibles that would take me in a new direction following the birth of my son, Alec.  The decorative remnants would now embellish the handcrafted christening gown I imagined for my infant son.

My own christening layette, although beautiful, was unwearable due to its fragile state and with many family gowns either misplaced or in a deteriorated condition, I had found my niche … reproducing the adorable gowns of a by-gone era.
