Countryside style injected with serious ladylike glamour
Caroline Nicholls is the eponymous brand that combines countryside style and ladylike glamour, and that was founded just two years ago by trained milliner Caroline Nicholls following a chance encounter at the Cheltenham Festival. Wearing one of her own unique hat designs, Caroline was approached by a lady who wanted to commission her own hat design, and the business has gone from strength to strength ever since that day.
Caroline Nicholls creates elegant, country-inspired hats, fascinators and hat pins that are perfect for finishing an outfit with a flourish, whether the destination is a wedding, a day at the races or the something a little grander!
Caroline has a wide collection of off-the-peg designs on show at both her Somerset studio and on her website, including handmade, crushable Felt Fedoras (from £65.00), hat pins crafted from British feathers (from £25.00) and an eye-catching and on-trend Fur Pom Fascinator (£125.00).
Caroline is delighted to take commissions from those who are looking for something totally unique, from ladies who need to match a tricky colour in their outfit or when the hat is going to be the focal point of the ensemble.
For those who really want to up the glamour stakes but stay snug and warm, Caroline also has a sublime range of ethically-sourced fur garments and accessories. Her Fox Fur Collars (from £95.00) are a brilliant way to add a touch of countryside elegance to a favourite coat or blazer and will keep the wearer warm whatever the weather. There are elegant
Cashmere and Fox-Fur Trim Scarves (£135.00) available in a wide range of colours, plus seriously lovely fur gilets and coats (from £315.00), sumptuous fur-trimmed parkas,wraps and capes and a range of accessories! For those who would prefer not to wear real fur but are keen to rock this most glamourous of country-inspired looks, there are plenty of options crafted from faux fur including cosy snoods, scarves and gilets.
Caroline Nicholls takes her designs on the road throughout the year, exhibiting at point-to-points as well as other major equestrian and country events. It was exhibiting alongside much-loved and established brands at the prestigious Badminton Horse Trials at the end of her very first year in business that set Caroline’s business apart from the competition and marked her as one to watch in the future.
