Giulia Mio is an Italian, award winning couture milliner devoted to making hats and headpieces from the finest materials, with an immaculate finish.
Her style is the result of a blend of Fashion and observation of Nature.
Fine Arts and Theatre also have a significant influence on her creative process, with her love for the unexpected and uncanny. She has been trained as traditional milliner, but she has always been interested in new techniques and innovative materials and the combination of these elements allow Giulia to free her inspiration from conventions, ranging from classic and timeless hats to crazy and full of details artistic pieces.
She studied set and costume design in Venice and in Milan, and she learned millinery for fashion and theatre between Rome, Milan and Zurich. She founded her company "Giulia Mio Millinery" in 2015, and since then she was awarded several national and international millinery awards.
She is specialised in creating one-off hats and fascinators, tailored to client’s style and personality, to give a unique bespoke experience. Her hats and headpieces are sculptural and delicate, designed to flatter the face and proportioned to the person and whole outfit. She sources the best materials available in the UK and Europe to present her clients with a wide selection to choose from without compromising the quality.
Giulia has become quite known for her exquisite silk and leather flowers, completely hand-painted and hand-made, which adorn many of her creations.
Her wide range of skills allow her to create truly bespoke headwear for every occasion, but she always has a good range of ready made hats available to buy directly from her website or in her studio.
Having a bespoke hat made is a fulfilling experience, and Giulia will always make sure to create something that truly enhance her clients’ personality and beauty.
