Gok Wan comes to Newcastle!

by Margaret Woodliff | October 25, 2018 | 0 Comments

On September 30th Gok Wan brought his latest show to Newcastle, One Size Fits All, concentrating on building female self confidence and worth. I was delighted that Gok chose to include my latest millinery collection and have now created a page on my website called "The Gok Wan Collection" with some of the images from the catwalk show!
Here's a selection of images from the detailed preparation that took place before the show started, which I think gives a taste of the feeling of anticipation and sheer fun that pervaded the day.
And some of the pieces that I showed on my catwalk show!

Gok Wan - One Size Fits All - is coming to Gateshead!

by Margaret Woodliff | August 06, 2018 | 0 Comments

For those of you that don't know yet - I have an announcement - the charismatic Gok Wan has selected the North East for the start of his next tour, One Size Fits All.

And if that wasn't exciting enough, Gok has selected Margaret Woodliff Wright Millinery as the only couture millinery collection to be on the catwalk at the Gateshead Hilton on September 30th, I can't wait to hear his catwalk commentary on my collection!

So I am now busy getting my collection completely up to date and the excitement is growing, especially as four of the ten shows, including the Gateshead Hilton show, are already fully sold out!

Finally, if you fancy getting a touch of your own millinery excitement too, would you like to make your own piece of winter millinery, if so please get in touch. My next three week workshop course starts in Alnwick on October 25th, and continues on Nov 1st & 8th - but hurry as there's just three places remaining. You can find more details on the workshop page of my website.

Hats Off! Featured in Living North

by Margaret Woodliff | June 10, 2018 | 0 Comments

On our return from holiday a lovely surprise awaited me - the publication of an in-depth interview and overview of my millinery work, entitled Hats Off! in the magazine Living North.

For those of you who are not based in the North East I'll give you a little background about this lovely magazine. Founded in 1999, Living North quickly built a reputation for high quality illustration, with a strong editorial and stylish design. Living North despite humble beginnings as a small quarterly magazine back in the 90's, now publishes a monthly 350 page glossy magazine full of gorgeous features, and has become one of the most significant quality media outlets in the North East of England.  The magazine celebrates much of what is excellent about the North of England -  from its glorious coastline, small niche businesses, heritage, food and numerous other attractions, from boutiques to bistros and much more besides.

As you may know I recently rebranded my business "The Northumberland Milliner" so I was delighted when Chloe Laing of Living North called me to chat about all things Hats!, including the rebranding process, and then asked if I would like to be featured in the magazine - of course I said Yes!  So after our long chat Chloe also made a selection of some images of my latest designs, too. As you maybe able to tell the images were taken at Alnwick Garden, where I was delighted to work again with Jim Gibson. Jim, who is an award winning photographer is based up in Norham, was commissioned to shoot my latest collection by Keith Newman of Highlights PR.

So I hope you will enjoy reading Chloe's article which gives a bigger picture of my career and personal development as a couture milliner. Please do get in touch if you need any further details of my millinery work, would like to view my ready to wear collection or commission hat or headpiece for a summer event.
