Her designs draw on her experience as a theatre designer and stage performer, creating feminine, elegant and glamorous hats that compliment the wearer and the occasion. Valeria knows how a hat once placed on the head can enhance or even transform the wearer. Her aim is to bring glamour back and instil a silent confidence in the wearer that is irresistible and empowering. Beyond her theatrical influence, Valeria also finds inspiration in Scandinavian mythology or German or Eastern European folklore.
All of Valeria’s hats are beautifully hand-made in her Atelier in London, using only materials of highest quality or great condition vintage pieces, paying greatest attention to detail and execution. She designs, steams, blocks, pleats, sews, shapes, constructs, dyes and paints with a passion. Her hats combine sophisticated trims and dramatic shapes to create sensational hats that are seductive and sophisticated.
