Lomax & Skinner


Lomax and Skinner do more than just make exquisite hats. With a deep knowledge and understanding of their craft Sarah Lomax and Rachel Skinner design and create contemporary millinery, rich in form and shape yet thoughtful in design, their pieces supremely capturing and highlighting natural confidence.

With backgrounds in fashion and art the pair met in the New Bond Street workrooms of the late Frederick Fox. Learning their trade making hats for The Queen, other members of the royal family and celebrity clients, the traditional millinery methods and meticulous attention to detail inspired and informed their working practices.

After enjoying independent careers in millinery Sarah and Rachel came together in 2013 to create the label Lomax and Skinner. With an ethos rooted in outstanding quality and timeless appeal, the profound respect they have for the history of their trade is woven through every piece they make.

Sarah and Rachel work from a studio in Lewes, East Sussex. Together they hand craft bespoke hats and headpieces for weddings, race meetings, society and international events.
