Isla is an award-winning milliner and costume designer based in London.  Following a background in music and fine art, she brings an innovative and diverse approach to the field of millinery and costumery.

Both daring and avant-garde, and yet with a universal appeal, her fantastical imagination and love of the theatrical results in unique pieces; each one expressive, whimsical, intricate and bold.

As one rather poetic man once said, "All the world's a stage", so why not dress the part?
