Its been a great month on the media front. We were deligthed to have our Spring/Summer 2019 collection have a two page feature in the Sunday Business Post Magazine but not just that . . . it made front page! A massive thank you to Ruth O’Connor who came to the studio and we spent a morning chatting all things hats.

Colour Pop! - James Fickling Photography


We were delighted when London photographer James Fickling asked to use our hats for his shoot Colour Pop.

The shoot was based on colour, tailoring and light and the images have turned out truly beautifull.

An interview with James about his work and this shoot was featured by Merrymen mag.



What A Wedding It Would Be......

It was a superb Saturday morning, full of white elegance at this year’s ‘Bridal Salon’ by The Gloss magazine. It was an all day event hosted by wedding planning expert Tara Fay of Xena Productions at the glorious 5 star Merrion Hotel.

FAO Millinery were only delighted to have the opportunity to match our crisp hats with Helen Cody’s stunning bespoke dresses for any contemporary bride.

The day started early for the brides-to-be with ideas and inspiration from the perfect dress to the hat to makeup, hair, flowers, cake tasting and covering all questions down to the stationary.

What a way to start the wedding season!

The Blazing Combination of FAO Millinery and Electronic Sheep

Fashion Show Fundraiser for NMH, Holles Street. 

FAO Millinery was only delighted when asked by Electronic Sheep to crown their aw17 collection for the 6th annual fashion show, for the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street. It was a fabulous night held at the royal hospital kilmainham in the great hall, styled by Catherine Condell and hosted by Anton Savage with all proceeds going to Helping Holles Street NMH Foundation.  

styled for Electronic Sheep's vibrant, 'universal cowboy' collection, our hats were a  combination of the Bruma crown with a tousled brim in earthy tones and colour popping trims.
