I’m Your Coach,
Katherine Elizabeth Millinery
I am an award-winning millinery designer who has a shop in the Iconic Oxo Tower London.
I have worked with designers and artists such as Jasper Gavida, Stephen Jones, The Noisetts, Lily Allen, Dita Von Teese, Jameela Jamil to name a few.
I have successfully taught thousands of students all about millinery and business over the years and worked with companies such as Visa, Investec, Royal Bank of Canada to put on special millinery events in venues such as the Cliveden house, Chewton Glen, Berkley Hotel, the Rosewood Hotel.
Trust me – I know what it means to be busy!
I know how easy it is to put yourself last – and I know how that feels.
The Membership site is all about taking back your life, creating things that you love and making a business from it. You don’t have to work all this out on your own and pay thousands in training fees.
