Meet the Maker – Fantastic Feathers

Aoife HarrisonAoife Harrison Design

This is Aoife’s first time at Dublin Maker event and she is very excited to be demonstrating some hat making skills. Aoife loves teaching Millinery classes and teaches a range of classes in her studio nearby on Fitzwilliam Street Upper. “People have a fear of hats” she said, “I want to show people that hats are fun & that there is something for everyone”.


Coming from a business background Aoife turned a hobby into a business after being made redundant in 2012. She studied Millinery in London in KCC College and has done intensive courses with prestigious British Milliners including Noel Stewart, Dillion Wallwork & Bridget Bailey. “I am constantly being inspired & am so lucky to be able to do what I love everyday”


Aoife’s main market is Mother of the Bride/Groom and people going to the races but Aoife also specializes in Bridal Headpieces & accessories. “I get a lot of bespoke bridal orders for Bird-Cage veils; cuffs & even belts. I love being able to be a part of a brides special day”. Check out more at http://aoifeharrisondesign.ie/
