Designer Katie Vale Designs
Katie Vale Designs can design and make the perfect headwear for your wedding, whether it’s a delicate fascinator or a one of a kind wedding veil.
Katie Vale Designs began in 2004, when the designer’s hair just wouldn’t conform to the trend of having sleek, straight hair, so she began to create pretty ‘things’ to accessorise her uncontrollable curls, and found that she loved doing it!
When people began to ask where they could get her hair accessories from, Katie headed back to night school and undertook over two years worth of wire work courses, and spent years training with Rose Corey, who made the Queen Mother’s hats and hair accessories.
Skilled in the traditional art of millinery, Katie makes all her items by hand herself. This way she can do what she loves and ensure everything is of the finest quality.
If she’s not sat at her sewing machine, she has her pliers in hand and is crafting on a daily basis – what started out as a retaliation against a fashion trend has turned into a lifelong passion.
