Working with Immy
With most high street and online shops offering a fairly nice range of headpieces, you might be wondering ‘why go bespoke’? Truthfully, the word ‘bespoke’ can, at first, appear a little intimidating!
Is it an option for me? Can I afford it? What if I’m unsure what I’d like?
With Immy Howard Millinery, the process of ordering a bespoke headpiece is relaxed, fun, and exciting! Friendly consultations and optional fittings make sure you and your headpiece take absolute priority, whatever the occasion. Immy will talk through your ideas to help figure out just what you have in mind, while accommodating factors such as your personal budget and deadline into the piece, so there is nothing to worry about and you are totally catered for. Bespoke is an option for everyone, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to talk further!
High Quality Finish
With Immy Howard Millinery, the care taken creating your headpiece is second to none. The materials I source are all highly considered, be it a shade of sinamay to coordinate with your jewellery, or some stunning vintage lace, the sky is the limit. If you would like something more sentimental including in your headpiece, such as a particular decoration or piece of matching fabric from your dress, then that is totally possible as well.
Furthermore, bespoke does not mean unaffordable! Prices range depending on the size, materials and time it takes for me to bring your headpiece to life, so do get in touch, all questions are welcomed! A complimentary consultation can be easily arranged either over the phone/email or at my Oxford-based studio to talk over any ideas you may have and get the ball rolling.

Unique to you
Going bespoke means working with Immy on a headpiece that is totally built around you! Whether it is altering the colours or fabrics from one of my previous collection pieces, or starting completely from scratch, each bespoke creation is lovingly handmade with you at the forefront.
Your outfit, face shape, hair style and colour scheme will all be taken into consideration and I will keep you in the loop throughout, making the experience really special and leaving you with a piece that is totally exclusive to you and your outfit!
There are two main ways which generally work best for placing bespoke orders:
Request one of my existing designs in a colour or fabric of your choice, and make any slight adjustments. You can do this either through the form found when adding one of my products to your basket, or via private email. These prices will be in the same ballpark as listed in my shop!
Go totally bespoke! Get in touch to book a consultation with me where we can discuss any ideas, colours, fabrics and shapes you may have in mind, or start the brain storming off together if you’re unsure! This process is really enjoyable and you will be fully involved throughout.
Once happy with your design, a 30% deposit is needed to move forward and secure your order. Then, I’ll get started! I will, of course, keep you posted with updates of how the piece is coming together, and will invite you back for a fitting before collection so I can make sure you’re still happy.
