John Boyd Hats: Sarah Marshall


Sarah Marshall is the owner and Creative Director at John Boyd Hats. Sarah was trained by Mr John Boyd and worked alongside him for 14 years. She has a deep understanding and respect of this much loved millinery brand, and is carrying on the label following John Boyd's death in 2018.

John Boyd Hats was established in 1947, and has a loyal clientele from all over the world. John Boyd's ethos for his work was that 'the face dictates the hat, regardless of time or fashion', something which Sarah continues to echo in her work today, making sure that each design is carefully made to suit the wearer.

Sarah's background in textile art helps to push the label in new directions, combining vintage materials with modern techniques. She specialises in dying to match outfits and enjoys hand painting silk flowers for the finishing touch to her hats.
