Hats are on the fashion menu as designer Bridgett O'Connell showcases her designs at Norwich Fashion Week

Autumn and winter catwalks in London, Milan and New York dictated that the hat would make a comeback in the new season, which is why all eyes are on felt hat maker Bridgett O'Connell. Bridgett makes felt from raw unspun wool to create hats, flowers and scarves. Her collections are available from several shops in Norfolk including Ethika, Arts Desire and The Jade Tree in Norwich, and Simply Norfolk in Wells, No 4 Market Place in Bungay and Tamarind Designs in Aylsham. Bridget also holds regular felt making workshops in collaboration with Arts Desire in Norwich, Caroline Nash in Blofield and Sheila Gates at Burlingham Hall.

Showing at: Norwich Fashion Week Open Store at Ethika on Tuesday September 27 at 4pm until 5pm.
