She’s recorded 9 albums with her own bands and…Continue reading

Keely Hunter is a London based hat designer presently making wooden hats! I love the idea of a wooden hat and had a chat with Keely about her inspirations.

We put a lot of effort into choosing a dress but often you forget to put the same…Continue reading
