About Bettina Thomas

Bettina Thomas - An international Milliner

Bettina is an international milliner with many years’ of experience who first launched her designs onto the public stage in Rome in 2008, where she was living at the time. Originally a couture dressmaker from France - and nobody needs an introduction to the innate beauty which runs through French style - Bettina has succeeded in fusing a life of fluctuating cultures and ever-changing landscapes into a seamless vision of designs challenging enough to excite her clients, whilst also leaving them at ease with what they are wearing.

She is acutely aware of what she sees and hears so her creative work is continuously refreshed as her technical prowess accrues. For five years she has studied and mastered the practices used by the British court. The styles and innovations originally created for the then Queen in 1937, rapturously applauded in Paris, and then worldwide, are now the foundation of Bettina’s prowess. Such meticulous training ensures that Bettina’s hats are engineered to perfection - as easy to wear, as they are stunning to see.."The key is to choose the right hat for the right event,” -says Bettina.
