Working from her studio in London, Uma creates wonderful headpieces made entirely by hand, using techniques such as hand blocking. Rather than purchasing factory made silk flowers she hand stitches each and every one. Uma began by studying etching and sculpture at art school in London, but her love of fabric and jewellery led her to study theatrical millinery. Uma completed her formal education in millinery at Kensington and Chelsea College with Kirsten Scott, former milliner for Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel. She then went on to work with celebrity milliner Stephen Jones. Uma is dedicated to creating gorgeous and eye-catching pieces, each made to exceptionally high standards and using only the finest materials.
