Melanie applied to the Royal College of Art to study millinery after winning the Worshipful Company of Feltmakers design award in 2012. Her QEST Leathersellers’ Company Scholarship supported her during this course and she has since set up her own company, Lewiston Millinery.

I sculpt my own blocks on which I create unique headpieces, often using antique fittings which adds to their individuality.
