Couture Milliner approaches her busiest time of the year in Dubai with a new collection and many new bespoke orders

Every year, the Dubai World Cup sets the fashion stakes high with people dressing to impress with the most high-end designer labels accompanied by some stunning hats that are worn to steal the show. This March will be no exception as Karen Hamilton, one of the region’s most renowned milliners launches her new collection and bespoke orders.

The new collection has been designed keeping in mind the latest trends, fabrics and customer preferences. Alongside dressing her regular customers, each year Karen’s reputation brings her many new clients, which allows her creative passion to take shape. Each of the bespoke pieces is unique to the individual and designed to match the outfit.

The Dubai World Cup has also seen Karen collect accolade for her work, the most recent being with the Dubai World Cup Milliners Award 2015 for best hat, when a stunning black and pearl creation worn by Fashion Consultant Natalia Shustova saw her take the prestigious award.

Karen has had the pleasure of dressing a host of well-known faces including Melbourne Champion lady jockey Casey Bruce, Dubai-based presenter Katie Fielder and celebrity fashion stylist Kelly Lundberg and many other famous socialites.

Throughout the year Karen spends her time split between Dubai and Melbourne alongside designing for many other private clients. She also designs for a UK based clientele and for the world famous Ascot Race week, where she also has some regular customers and new clients that add on each year.
