Jane Corbett Millinery

Last year, out of the blue the millinery world was taken aback by the notice that Jane Corbett would be closing her millinery business.

Jane is a trained artist with a degree in fine art, so it comes as no surprise that she is now focusing her efforts on her true love & some of her incredibly unique work can be seen on her website.

I wanted to take a look at some of her most memorable hats.  Her small velvet percher trilby’s were a favourite of Kate Middleton & she wore one on her first Christmas Day as a Duchess.

This has always stuck in my mind as to what a stunning hat, both in style & colour it is. And it has been worn in a similar style several times since.

We saw Kate wear this soft pale pink straw saucer disc at the Queen’s Birthday celebrations too. There is a lovely layering of lace that sits on top & under the brim too. A lot of Jane’s hats have a lovely lace texture added to them.

You can see more intricate lace applique work on Carole Middleton’s hat that she wore to Royal Ascot here too.

I think it’s clear to see the artistry flowing out of Jane, when you look at the sculptured work on some of Kate’s headwear.

I think the hat that will always be remembered when thinking of Jane Corbett as a milliner, is of course, the hat that Carole Middleton wore to the Royal Wedding between Kate & William.

I wish Jane all the success in the world in her new ventures….and would also like to thank her for the work she did as a milliner; as she was innovative & unique in her work, carried out with intricate precision.
