Hats for Special Occasions
The perfect occasion hat starts with the right milliner. Nerida Fraiman’s work has been featured on the covers of Vogue, Vogue Italia, Harper’s Bazaar, W Magazine and more, and worn by HRH Princess Beatrice, HRH Princess Eugenie, HRH Princess Haya as well as numerous global fashion luminaries including Stella Tennant, Jordan Dunn.
Nerida’s occasion hats are handmade to order in her London atelier and retail in fine department stores and boutiques across the UK and around the world. Nerida uses only the finest materials, with her occasion hats hand-stitched by her team of world-class artisans. If you are in search of an occasion hat that will turn heads, Nerida Fraiman Millinery is the perfect place to find your dream hat.
We are commissioned to make spectacular one-off pieces for catwalk, film and editorial. We also design hats for brides, mother-of the bride, bridesmaids, aunts and siblings ensuring everyone looks their best and carries their own signature style at the same event.
Occasion Hat Decisions!
Regardless of the occasion, finding the ideal hat or fascinator is a process. There are myriad considerations in play, each of which will influence your choice of hat. The first, of course, is what you will be wearing. Do you want a hat to match your outfit, or a showstopping hit? We can help you decide the best approach taking into account the cultural context, the occasion and your personality.
Colour is another fundamental aspect of your occasion hat that will need to be considered. Nerida’s occasion hats are highly stylistic, exquisitely proportioned and beautifully coloured. We understand the importance of finding the right shade and offer a large range of colours to choose from and our bespoke service enables you to have your hat dyed to a colour of your own choosing.
Colour balance does not necessarily mean matching the colour of your outfit, it may mean contrasting, layering or introducing another colour dimension. Nerida’s personal attention and expert advice also takes into consideration your own personal skin tone and colouring.
For over 20 years we have helped clients select the right millinery for their special occasion. The team at Nerida Fraiman has enabled their clients to make the right choice with reference to the social context. A hat for Royal Ascot does not necessarily need to be oversized to make you to stand out from the crowd, bridal headwear can be the focus of the whole outfit. We take time to advise and direct, always striving for the most elegant and dignified solution for the scale of the event and for your height and face shape.
The Originator of the Fascinator
Nerida Fraiman is widely credited with sparking the fascinator trend back in 1998. The idea was borne when working for Philip Treacy and noticing how much detail and creativity went into making the trimmings for the hats. She later formed her own atelier on the idea of using just that exquisite trim on a headband, comb or other fixing.
Nerida refers to her smaller hats, fascinators and headbands as pieces of jewellery to adorn the face. The benefits are that they are subtle and embellish a look. Wearing a Nerida Fraiman fascinator is an easy way to dress up any outfit, timeless and beautifully detailed.
