Our Designer - Lizzie McQuade


Lizzie McQuade is a London-based, Scottish milliner who creates hats and head-pieces for the discerning, romantic woman. McQuade fluently fuses straw, felt and sinamay with textural embroidery, hand-crafted trimmings and unexpected materials such as PVC and latex. Her trademarks are intriguing, intricate embellishments, dip-dyed accents and easy to wear feminine shapes.

Utilising her skills in traditional millinery, embroidery, latex a leather-work, beading and hand-dying techniques, McQuade creates modern pieces that are sculptural and quirky, feminine and, of course, desirable.

In addition to creating bespoke hats for her private clients, Lizzie frequently works on commissioned pieces for catwalk shows and fashion magazines. In 2013 Lizzie was chosen from over 2000 entries as the winner of the Triumph ‘Women in Making’ award. Besides, Lizzie shows her seasonal collections at London Fashion Week as part of the Headonism initiative, having been selected by Stephen Jones and The British Fashion Council in 2014.
