I am Bink, a self taught, full time British milliner established in 2008. My studio is based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, my hats sell internationally. I make glittered fascinators, oversized hats & quirky hair accessories for people who are extraordinary. Avant garde millinery is my true love and I worship at the Altar of Haberdashery on a daily basis. I describe my work as "Pop Surreal Millinery", inspired by art not fashion. I am a storyteller, telling stories with hats. These are moments in time captured as millinery. I also run Temptress of Waikiki Millinery, elegant, classic but unique hats for weddings and the races.
