Great milliners are born not made - and Anna Gilder is definitely one of those rare talents. Anna's mother is a highly skilled pattern-maker, and Anna grew up watching her create the latest fashion in own her atelier. Those early years gave Anna a unique understanding of fashion, style and fabrics. At the tender age of 12 Anna was already creating “fashion” clothes for her friends and was the driving force behind her high-school fashion show; dressing her friends in clothes created from black rubbish bags with matching recycled hairpieces!
Anna is a trendsetter and follows fashion carefully. She lives in London - one of the world's great fashion capitals. She knows that being a stylish young woman is not easy. Anna could never find the perfect millinery house that would produce hats to match her sense of style and quality expectations. Anna searched everywhere, and most of the time was disappointed - what she wanted simply didn't exist or was just too expensive. So she decided to establish her own company that would cater for young women, who, like her, love fashion and enjoy a beautiful, well-made hat.
And so Anna Gilder couture millinery was born!
Anna started millinery not long ago, but she already enjoys an amazing reputation. She has created one-of-a-kind custom hats for style mavens around the world. Women trust her style and appreciation for quality. So it's no surprise that patrons have ordered her creations to wear to many world-famous events like Royal Ascot and the Kentucky Derby.
