Jay started her millinery journey in the London College of Fashion in 2004. She also trained with Rose Cory, Royal Milliner to the late Queen Mother. With a great passion for millinery, Jaycow has travelled the world attending millinery events; The International Millinery Forum, Hats of to
Melbourne, Hats off to Brisbane and Millinery Meet Up to learn from well known, experienced milliners.
Considered a pioneer of millinery in Hong Kong, introducing the craft of bespoke
millinery to the Hong Kong fashion scene in 2005. Jay was one of very few milliners to work in Hong Kong, creating bespoke hats for a city where one might not expect to find so many millinery enthusiasts. Such an unusual profession in an unexpected city meant that Jay achieved a kind of industry status as the go-to person for hats. Her designs have crowned the heads of famous pop music icons,
actors, socialites, brides and fashionistas in Hong Kong, Japan, USA, China and the UK.
Now based in Toronto, Jay enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience with other like-minded enthusiasts through special workshops.
She has taught workshops in Hong Kong, USA, Australia and China and now here in Toronto!
