To celebrate the recent release of Downton Abbey Series two on DVD, we were invited along to a very special afternoon of tea and millinery at the Grovesnor House Hotel in London.
Award-winning milliner Katherine Elizabeth, who has created pieces for everyone from the House of Dior to hit music group the Noisettes, was on hand to offer her top tips and guide us through creating our very own hat inspired by the television series.
After much experimentation with feathers, netting and vintage buttons (and a fair amount of cake and caffeine) we’d created a fantastic piece of “Mad Hatter couture”.
You’ll be pleased to hear that you too can enjoy the experience at your very own Katherine Elizabeth event complete with vintage styling thanks to Benefit cosmetics- perfect for a special occasion, or just for some creative fun.
Downton Abbey Series two is available on Blu-ray and DVD now
“Mad Hatter Couture” afternoons are available from £45 per person: visit www.Katherineelizabethhats.com for further information
