Question How do I place an order?
AnswerIn-Stock Items: Please add the items to your shopping cart, and pay securely at checkout using credit/debit card (processed using the Stripe gateway) or PayPal.

Custom-Made Items: Please contact us to request a custom-made piece. Every customer is unique and we will consult via email and/or phone to design a piece especially for you. Once a design has been agreed upon, an invoice will be sent. A minimum 50% deposit is required prior to any work commencing on a custom made piece, with the balance to be paid prior to pickup or delivery. This deposit covers material costs and secures your agreed deadline. You will be sent progress photos at various stages during the construction, for approval, and minor changes only will be permitted.

Question How much does a custom made piece cost?
AnswerCustom made and bespoke headpieces are designed especially for the wearer, and time is taken in the design and making process. Every piece is carefully assembled by hand in our Melbourne studio.

As a guideline, pricing is as follows:

  • Spring Racing and Special Event bespoke pieces from $150
  • Sunray/spiked halos from $200
  • Bridal pieces from $300
  • Price is dependent on complexity of design and material choice.
  • A 50% deposit is required prior to custom work commencing, to guarantee your place in the making schedule

If requesting a past or present design in an alternative colourway, the price may vary depending on availability of materials and whether these need to be sourced.

Question What is the turnaround time for custom made items?
AnswerMade-to-order pieces can take between 2-4 weeks to create, depending on complexity.
If you need an item for a specific event or by a specific date, please contact us at least 4 weeks prior to the event to ensure we can create and deliver your items on time.

This store is owned and operated by a single person, Christine Amanda, who creates every piece by hand.

Question The item I want to buy is sold out. Will you be re-releasing that style?
AnswerSome items are one-off in nature due to using unique/vintage materials, these will be clearly marked in the listing. Other items may be able to be reproduced depending on availability of materials. Often styles can be made in alternative colourways, these will be noted in the listing. Please contact us to request a custom made piece.
