Combining traditional millinery techniques with new and innovative approaches, professional hat maker Jo Miller creates headwear for the high-end fashion industry. Using unusual materials such as rubber and animal bones, her creations have graced the catwalk and been seen in the likes of Vogue magazine.
With a background in Fine Art, Miller relocated to London in 2011 to re-train as a milliner. Honing her craft at the Royal College of Art, Miller studied under renowned hat makers Sarah Cant and Flora McLean. Since 2014 she has worked for the iconic Stephen Jones Millinery, as well as collaborating with designers Sophia Webster and Studio XO.
Miller’s work is signified by the unusual juxtaposition of materials and designs that push the boundaries of her field. Her inventive headwear continually questions the role of millinery today, and in returning to her hometown of Scunthorpe, Miller is bringing her creations to a new audience.
