Sarah studied 3D Design at Falmouth College of Art, where she developed a keen interest in sustainable design, focusing on work which is made by hand and made to last. After several years of training with Rose Cory and working for artist and milliner Jane Corbett, Sarah started at John Boyd Hats as an apprentice, later running the business for Mr Boyd for over ten years.
During this time she designed and made new hat collections which helped invigorate the brand. She encouraged a new younger clientele of women to start wearing hats, and at the same time gained the trust of Mr Boyd’s loyal and long standing clients. She has a deep understanding and respect of this much loved millinery label, and honours Mr Boyd’s style and ethos in her designs as owner and Creative Director of John Boyd Hats.
Sarah teaches couture millinery techniques on a one to one basis and in small groups at her Knightsbridge studio. She is a founding member of The British Hat Guild.
