Milliners Sahar Freemantle & Katherine Ferdinand launch hat making event at Institute Of Making
[dropcap]M[/dropcap]illiners Sahar Freemantle and Katherine Ferdinand (both pictured below) are launching a project for women who have undergone hair loss. A free day of fun, creativity and empowerment where each lady is invited to make and decorate their own bespoke hat or headpiece. The ﬁrst event will be held at and sponsored by The Institute of Making, UCL on Saturday 5th April and will allow 15 women plus a guest to spend the day – with the assistance of professional milliners – to create their own cloche, turban, or other style of headwear.
‘Hat Over Heels’ came about when Sahar Freemantle took part in a Leadership programme at the Landmark Education Centre, which encouraged participants to lead a community project. Sahar has had many past requests from cancer patients for hats, and realised how special it would be to hold a day for them and their loved ones to come and enjoy themselves, whilst making their own personalised hat.
Sahar, who has two millinery labels; UglyLovely and Sahar Millinery says; ‘My two brands are quite different, one is about ﬁnding beauty in the unconventional, and the other is more vintage in style. ‘Hat Over Heels’ is bringing the two together, a celebration of beauty in all forms, and allowing these incredible women to express their inner gems of creativity and femininity. My aim is to create a very happy memory in this otherwise testing time’.
Katherine joined the project after creating her initiial collection dedicated to femininity and elegance ‘‘As women, hair holds much of our identity and its loss can impact our conﬁdence dramatically. After being touched by cancer both with family and friends I learnt the importance of maintaining the feeling of femininity, fun and normality throughout this process. It is a difﬁcult time therefore when Sahar approached me with this project I was eager to get involved and help to create an experience where all women feel comfortable, beautiful and conﬁdent’.
