Hat Attack #60: Carrie Jenkinson Millinery
July’s Hat Attack is a stunning piece of wearable art by the talented Carrie Jenkinson of Carrie Jenkinson Millinery HERE based in the UK. This wonderful rainbow feather fascinator headpiece mounted onto a millinery headband is the perfect festive accessory for a special event. This headpiece is the definition of “show stopper.” Or “show starter,” which might be a better description!

Why I Love Millinery – By Carrie Jenkinson
I think being creative in your life on any level is good for the soul! I enjoy trying out new designs and love making Fascinators and hats for people, it’s great fun and with millinery you can really get creative with your ideas. Each milliner has there own style but my designs tend to be a little “out there” as I’m constantly trying to move the boundaries of millinery.
