You may have seen from my recent post that I was lucky enough to be asked to present “Hatwalk 2013” in which I saw some absolutely stunning hats and headpieces.
One, however, stood out to me from the audience which I quickly rushed to compliment.
I later found out that the lady I spoke to was Debbie Fanning, a young, up and coming milliner from Dublin and the stunning hat that she wore was one of her own creations.
You can imagine my excitement in the coming days when I was contacted by the talented Debbie, saying she wanted to send me this beautiful headpiece which I had so admired that evening.
I love to wear hats, to me they add a touch of glamour to an outfit and I cannot wait to wear this piece as I have just the perfect dress in mind to match it with.
Debbie completed her training with Irish Milliner, Janette Pegley-Reed at the Irish School of Millinery & Design and over the coming months she will be undertaking further training with top Milliner Aoife Kirwan.
Not only is Debbie fast acquiring a huge fan base, she also has a celebrity clientele and in 2012, London based singer Gabby Young of “Gabby Young and the other Animals” was photographed wearing one of her creations. (Pic below).
Debbie has a range of one off bespoke pieces available at Beaux Bows in Georges Street Arcade, Dublin 2 – Oasis Florist, Terenure, Dublin 6w and at her Etsy store.
She also makes one off pieces for anybody who requires something a little different for a day at the races, weddings or any other special events so I would strongly advise that you check out this girls website as she is definitely one to watch!
Huge thank you to Debbie for my beautiful piece and I look forward to wearing more of your hats in the future!
