Want a gorgeous hat created just for you?

Wendi’s couture hats and headpieces are lovingly blocked into shape in the traditional way by steaming on vintage, wooden hat blocks. They are then assembled together and embellished with trims that are designed by Wendi. Everything is sewn by hand. Not a drop of glue is ever used except for the Philpot label inside the hat.


With a background in styling, Wendi can assure that your hat will fit you correctly, complement your outfit, and most importantly suit your personal style, shape, proportion and your personality. A gorgeous, couture hat has to be totally created just for you.


Wendi’s hats are a fabulous investment as they can be re-modelled and re-styled for another occasion or race day, and will last you for years.  This is because Wendi does not outsource the blocking (shaping) of her hats to China, import cheap flowers, trims, fascinators or use glue.

Not only will Wendi make you a gorgeous hat, but she can help style you for Fashions on the Fielda wedding or other special occasions.


Wendi does not sell her hats on the internet.


Her studio is filled with many unique styles of hats and headpieces.  Make an appointment today to visit Wendi’s studio.
