Thank you so much for making the hat I was really happy with it.
Milliners at the House of Balsam, custom millinery, are innovative and highly creative artisans located in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. Lead designer, Jennifer Lucas, has trained under a number of well known Australian Milliners, and recently at the Chateau Dumas, Auty, South France, a well recognised artisan workshop destination. Here Jennifer undertook millinery training with International Milliners, including Dillon Wallwork, Design Director, overseeing the production of millinery for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and Diana, Princess of Wales. Ongoing tutoring and an insatiable desire for increased knowledge in technique and form, ensure that a House of Balsam custom millinery piece is well made and will stand the test of time. Jennifer will create hats that are well designed. They will be comfortable to wear. They will be beautiful and long lasting.
Every woman has the right to feel beautiful and a hat does this!
You can flirt with a fan in your hand.You can flirt holding a cigarette, too. But a woman can really flirt with a hat! Dolores Foster
