At the initial consultation, Catherine, assesses from the client and the outfit, the styles of headwear that may suit. There are many shapes and styles at the studio for the client to try on. At this stage the client can decide on the style, color and detail. The client is normally asked to leave part of the outfit in the studio so Catherine can use it as a guide for the dyeing process.
The next consultation, which is normally a couple of weeks later (sometime longer if materials need to be ordered in from abroad), involves the client trying the blocked shape for size, viewing the color and finalizing the detail.
The final visit is for collection!
