Not one to blow my own trumpet, so here are some of my gorgeous clients to do it for me :)

The hats are amazing, I especially adore the green feather one. My sister immediately 'borrowed' the other one and I have yet to see it again:)

The shoe prince

Emma has provided me with three gorgeous
custom-made hats, each tailored to my specifications. She has a wonderful eye for
design and detail, her hats are all very well made, and she is a pleasure to deal

The lovely lori

Emma's work at Sakura Designs is the most inspiring and stunning millinery I'm aware of. The quality and attention to detail in her work is second to none, everything is finished to a beautifully high standard. I own one of her creations and have exhibited her work in a burlesque inspired art and craft show case, and I would not hesitate to recommend her. She creates beautiful and authentic vintage inspired designs, using real millinery techniques, her work is so unique and high quality that it stands out a mile amongst seas of 'on trend' mini top hats and fascinators that have flooded the market recently. If you want a timeless hat that is worth every penny, will last a lifetime and will constantly receive compliments then go to Emma.

Hi Emma,
I thought you might like to see the hat with the complete outfit from last night (hope you not easily shocked by slightly outrageous outfit ... but then it was Torture Garden !)

It was absolutely perfect with my outfit, and had many admiring comments and people asking where I had got it from.

Thanks !!

Dear Emma,
It is LOVELY!!!!!!

The tiara arrived yesterday and I keep trying at every opportunity.

I promise you a piccy when I wear it out - probably to the Bizarre
Ball, if not before!!

Thank you very, very much.

The tiara will be a much treasured special item in my wardrobe.

Take care and all the best for the future...


Emma Duggan is the woman behind Sakura Designs and her website is full of glamorous vintage-inspired pieces, any of which can be adapted to your requirements. I emailed her about a small hat I liked and asked if it could be made in colours to match my dress, which was not a problem. Emma was a pleasure to deal with, so the hat was even more special when it arrived as it felt like I knew the woman who had designed and made it for me. Since then I have ordered more, either adaptations of existing pieces or design collaborations between the two of us, and all are well made and good value for money.

Not that you can put a price on the number of compliments I receive each time I wear them. For this alone I would highly recommend a Sakura Designs piece for any vintage or retro gal who is after the perfect finishing touch to her look.
