MEET THE MILLINER

I'm Alana, the founder of Alana Louise Millinery, based in Leicestershire.

I take pride in that each design is handmade and finished to the highest quality.

After doing an art foundation, I then went on to complete a level 3 City and Guilds in Millinery. I really fell in love with hats and knew I would love to pursue this as a career. I've always been creative and hoped that one day I could follow in my dad's footsteps and be my own boss.

I love working with customers to design and make them 'that perfect hat' in which they feel so confident. The best part of the job is when I know the customer leaves happy and I get sent photos of them enjoying wearing my designs.
