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. 

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.
