Sarah Cant
Artist Statement
Sarah Cant is a couture milliner devoted to making hats and headpieces from the finest materials, with an immaculate finish.
Her fluid, organic shapes are the result of combining tradition with innovation. The bespoke hats and headpieces are sculptural, designed to be as striking off the head as on. The style is both quirky and feminine, with an emphasis on strong, elegant shapes which flatter the face. All of the pieces are entirely handmade by the designer.
Sarah trained at Kensington and Chelsea College and worked for Stephen Jones before establishing her own label. Her work is regularly featured in leading International fashion press.
In 2010, Sarah published Hats! Making Classic Hats and Headpieces in Fabric, Felt and Straw. The book has been published in the UK, USA, France and Spain, and is widely used as a teaching tool for millinery courses.
Sarah is Course Director for the highly-regarded HNC in Millinery at Kensington and Chelsea College and teaches regular short courses at West Dean College. She is a member of the innovative Studio Seven textile artists, as well as the Gloucestershire and Devon Guilds of Craftsmen.
