Pea Cooper is an award-winning Milliner who studied Millinery at Kensington & Chelsea College, London. She started her own business over a decade ago designing and making hats and headpieces.
Pea describes her work as a mixture of design, sculpture and engineering and they are always inspired by her love of History of Fashion and World Costume. As one of the very few fully trained Scottish milliners Pea has the skills to make any kind of hat and frequently says she can make a hat out of anything!
Her 'Quirky but Wearable' style has taken her around the world making hats and having exhibitions of her work in all sorts of exotic locations from Australia to Ecuador! In 2021 Pea relocated to Brighton.
