On November 28th Barbara Hodgson, the Culture Reporter of the Newcastle Journal and Evening Chronicle ran an online article in the Newcastle ChronicleLive. The article covered my millinery career to date, and the latest Making Headway collection, One Hundred Years. Barbara followed this up with an editorial feature on Saturday 29th November in the culture section of The Newcastle Journal. I felt very privileged to receive coverage in both papers. In both editions Barbara kindly included a number of images by Karen Rangley, Mark Winterbourne & Isobel Moore.

It was a very exciting day - along with the LCA 2013 alumni our Millinery group graduated from Leeds College of Art the culmination of two years of studying couture millinery. Great to see everyone and to celebrate our hard work.
