For Sophie Allport, millinery started out as an incredibly fun hobby and quickly turned into a rewarding career. From simple beginnings in rural Queensland to customers winning cars and sashes regularly both nationally and internationally. She has developed a deep passion for craftsmanship and quality materials and love using luxurious materials like leather, parisissal and tinalak straw, to mention a few.

Sophie believes it is absolutely incredible that milliners have the ability to turn humble material into works of art that share a little bit about us with the world and have the potential to take on a new life on the wearers head.
