Leonora Ferguson is an award winning milliner who specialises in wire lace headpieces. She studied Textile Design at NCAD and has worked in costume for film and television before launching her brand in 2011. Alongside her fashion range, she works with attractions such as Madame Tussauds to create hand crafted historically accurate pieces for their wax figures. The influence of her costume work can be seen in her diverse research, close attention to detail, construction techniques and use of unusual materials.
Leonora has been involved in special commissions such as creating animal themed hats for the charity Elephant Family, worn by their guests including Cara Delevingne, to the Animal Ball, London. Leonora’s Heads and Tails headpiece was selected for show at the V&A Museum in their Conservation Couture exhibition, 2016, alongside 40 high profile international fashion houses.
