Millinery is back on the menu with our fascinating new tutor: Georgina Abbott

Introducing our New Millinery Tutor and Courses

Georgina’s millinery life began at the London College of Fashion in 2001. She set up her own label and launched a wholesale range that was stocked in Fenwick of Bond Street. She went on to manage events and PR for the British Hat Guild and recruited Joanna Lumley as patron. Launched in Carnaby in 2010 and voted Micro Business of the Year in 2013, Atelier Millinery has gone from strength to strength. Since lockdown, the business is trading online and via stockists in Central London including Favourbrook on Pall Mall.

In 2014, Georgina co-founded London Hat Week with Becky Weaver of HATalk to create a regular celebration of hats in the city that is home to some of the best milliners in the world. In 2019 Georgina and Becky joined with 32 other industry colleagues to reform The British Hat Guild chaired by Stephen Jones OBE.
