When you order, please leave the following information at the checkout:

Occasion:  Where you will be wearing your hat and for what occasion?

Designs: An indication of specific designs from our collections you like already, in relation to shape, style etc.


The fee is non-refundable once paid. However, 50% of the design fee will be deducted from the order total if the consultation leads to a custom order.

For the fee listed, you will receive an attachment containing up to five design ideas with descriptions, prices and sketches.

You must allow up to seven working days to receive your design ideas, Maggie will need to consider all your choices and style before creating your designs, this creative process is best not rushed. Every design Maggie creates is based on your personal style factors but also has to embody the Maggie Mowbray Millinery design ethos and aesthetic.

Original designs can be changed slightly once design ideas have been sent for consideration.

Once you agree to continue with the design and have paid for it to be specially made, it will take a further 4 - 6 weeks for completion.
