Catherine Cooke has been designing and making hats since 1992. She initially trained and worked in Belgium for three years before working in London and then on to Australia where she worked with Moray Millinery and the Sydney Opera house.
On her return to Dublin she worked with Jacinta Fahy on Wicklow Street before setting up her own label in 1996 making bespoke wedding hats and headpieces and headwear for races.
Her success and reputation has come from a long lasting passion for her trade and a desire to create a hat or piece of headwear that suits the client, compliments the outfit and becomes the occasion. Her service and craftsmanship has attracted a wide and discerning client list.
She operates by appointment only from her south Dublin studio.
