I’m an English Fashion Designer/Milliner working out of Houston, Texas. Though I originally trained as a Bio-archaeologist, my move from the UK to Texas allowed me to reassess my career aspirations and I grabbed the opportunity to change direction and do something I truly loved. Violet Peacock was born! My Gran was a huge influence in my life. It was she who taught me to sew, and we used to make costumes for school and college theatre productions together. I loved working with fabric and creating beautiful things, as well as working with vintage clothes. I think this is probably the root of my “passion for fashion”.

I have always been “that” person, guaranteed to wear a hat at any opportunity. So it seemed a natural progression to start designing and making them myself. Being able to create beautiful art, with my own hands gives me the most amazing feeling of achievement. Having an idea, sketching it and seeing it come to life, thats what design is all about. I am lucky enough to be able to do what I love every day, and I try never to forget that. ...more
