We won at the Time Out #LoveLondonAwards ❤

The votes have come in and we have been awarded Best Shop in Elephant & Castle / Kennington in the Time Out Love London Awards!

We had a blast at the awards ceremony and met some a great bunch of other winners from all over London. The gals at Retro Revial Boutique were fabulous, as expected!

To celebrate our win we made glitter heart headpieces which went down a treat. Properly constructed from buckram, wire, UHU and  glitter fabric topped with a gold sprayed arrowhead feather the 2 pieces connected to make a full heart when worn side by side, much like the Best Friend necklaces from my youth!

Our neighbors at The Artworks Marcel & Sons were also winners for Best Resturaunt - congrats guys!

Big thank you to everyone who voted! It's such an honour and we are so pleased that a millinery shop, above all, has come out on top.

It's a Girl!

We are thrilled to welcome a new member to the team, say hello to Fiona!

Fiona is a keen milliner with a theatrical costume background and can pretty much make, well, anything! Sparkly unicorn horns and glittery wedding dresses just to name a few.

She has a great eye for colour and is forever finding objects that match her mermaid worthy minty green hair. Pastel colour hair is all the rage here at Petershams these days!

If you have not already seen us in the latest issue of The Hat Magazine check us out:

With London Hat Week approaching we are busy planning some amazing 1 hour flower power classes from October 6th-12th. Only a few places remain, so book your free ticket now here.

The postman brought us a massive delivery of cones and capelines this week! With winter around the corner we have stocked up on some amazing new colours. From deep dark burgundy visca to super soft wool peachblooms we are in love with it all.

So pop by our store, see all our new finds and do be sure to sell hello the fabulous Fiona!

Nice to Meet You!

The first month in our new London Shop has been nothing short of amazing! Milliners from far and wide are flocking to our store which is being described as a 'candy store' for milliners. Now isn't that sweet?!

Photographer Elenaa Cichetti from the London College of Communication came for a visit and took some great photos of our working day in action.

Also from LCC we had the fabulous Nike and Eva filming for a project on Elephant and Castle.

Legendary English milliner Ian Bennett dropped by for a visit as well as loads of faces from the millinery courses at Kensington and Chelsea. Leanne Fredrick from the Hattin' Around Podcast & Blog did a little shop and came up with a clever way to get her large feather flower home.

So lovely to meet you all and hope to see you soon!

We're Open!

I'm excited to announce that Petershams London store is now open!

Our very first shop is located just 1 minute from Elephant and Castle station in London at the very awesome Artworks. It's such a privilege to be surrounded by talented artists like Kim West and let me tell ya, the food is out of this world!

We opened our doors last Thursday and an amazing hat party followed.


And some pretty fabulous visors were made!

The inside of the shop is a vintage millinery lovers dream! Old veilings, ribbons and flowers are just a few of the finds to be had. For the modern millinery we carry a large range of sinamay, wire and everything else you may possibly need to craft up a hat.


 We can't wait to see you!

Unit 12a, The Artworks, Elephant Road, London SE17 1AY.

Hours: Monday-Friday 9am-5pm
