About Rachel Trevor-Morgan
Rachel Trevor-Morgan has established a thriving and successful business over the past fifteen years. Providing many of London's top fashion retailers, including Harrods and Selfridges, with beautiful and contemporary designs, she is a consistent customer favourite.
Her creations have enjoyed continuous press coverage with her hats featured on the covers and in the editorial pages of Vogue, Elle, Brides, the Daily Mail and The Sunday Times. In summer 2006, Rachel was given the accolade of being appointed to design hats for H.M. The Queen, who wore two of Rachel's creations to Royal Ascot in June.
From her 17th century premises in London St James's she delivers private client commissions and develops associations with other well respected designers such as CAROLINE CHARLES, MARIA GRACHVOGEL, BRUCE OLDFIELD and NEIL CUNNINGHAM which have placed her at the top end of the market. Rachel's pieces can also be found in specialist boutiques across the UK.
Rachel's childhood ambition was to become an actress and this developed into a keen interest in theatre costume. It is from this sense of the dramatic, coupled with her Mother's love of hats, that Rachel's passion for millinery has evolved. Rachel gained apprenticeships with Philip Somerville and Graham Smith.
The latter was her biggest influence: he offered good training, proffering the art of millinery as a craft, where individuality of design and a flawless finish were the objectives. This background has given Rachel a strong base in couture millinery where each hat is hand blocked and stitched and every flower hand dyed and rolled.
Her first studio was a shared attic in a monastery in Westminster and she sold her creations on a market stall in St Martins-in-the-Field. Rachel confesses that she finds inspiration from “everything and anything”. Today she designs her collections from her hillside retreat in Wales.
When she is not surrounded by Welsh black faced ewes, Rachel lives in London with her husband and three children.
