Designer Funeral hats hand made in London
A funeral requires a particular attitude to dressing – tactful, considerate and dignified. Funeral attire varies vastly across continents and cultures and we are experienced in working with women from all over the globe. Colours traditionally associated with funerals and mourning in the West are more sombre, including charcoal, black and navy blue or other similarly muted colours and we offer a wide range of sophisticated yet restrained headwear as well as a bespoke service.
The veiled funeral hat is a popular choice in the West striking a dramatic, sombre yet respectful tone. From conventional minimalism to wild flights of fancy, Nerida Fraiman Millinery provides an array of elegantly tasteful funeral attire, including the funeral fascinator, the black pillbox hat, the vintage black funeral hat with a veil and a classic black trilby, cloche or simple black beret.
Funerals, like weddings are occasions where dress codes are often formal. Most women will be wearing a dark, dressy hat to go with a black dress or classic suit. The hat should be elegant yet discreet, complementing an outfit without attracting too much attention. Some of our clients require just the opposite. We listen to you and we work with you.
Funeral hats in London by Nerida Fraiman are a timeless investment for any woman’s wardrobe.
Funeral Hats London: The Nerida Fraiman Millinery
At Nerida Fraiman Millinery we create bespoke funeral hats for London amd international clients that are exquisitely tasteful, appropriately deferential when required and comfortable to wear. Whether you choose a vintage style hat, or something completely contemporary, our millinery is designed to coordinate with your look.
Funeral hats can be veiled, a traditional style which provides privacy whilst deflecting unwanted attention at a difficult time. Today, the veil is more a symbolic component of the funeral hat, yet holds powerful symbolism nonetheless. At Nerida Fraiman Millinery we work with different types of hat veils from graphic and dramatic, to antique silk and merry widow veiling.
Likewise, the tradition of the black funeral hat or funeral fascinator has opened up to a broader, still muted palette of charcoal, navy and taupe. This loosening of traditional norms also means the funeral hat can be reworn as a glamorous accessory at a any formal brunch or cocktail party.
If you choose Nerida Fraiman Millinery to make your funeral hat, you will be invited to arrange an in-person consultation at our London workshop. We use the consultation to get to know your tastes and to allow you to try on styles from our collections.
You may bring photos of hats that express what you would like to see in your bespoke funeral hat which we can use as a springboard for ideas and concepts. Precise measurements will be taken to ensure the finished hat fits to perfection. You will be invited back for fittings as required.
