Milli Starr hats and headpieces are created from the finest handwoven straws and fur felts sourced from around the world. I often incorporate vintage trims from my personal collection such as Victorian feathers, luxe velvet ribbons, and silk veiling. Most are new-old-stock trims on the original wooden bolts from Switzerland or with fragile paper labels from Paris. These precious materials are meticulously shaped and sewn by hand using traditional couture methods.

Milli Starr is known for exquisite craftsmanship and a vintage-inspired elegance that complements a modern wardrobe.


“I have never owned a head adornment quite so beautiful, and each detail was hand-placed by Laura. Milli Starr’s bespoke methods and application of years of traditional training are factors that are dear to my own heart."
~ Rachel J.

“I was excited to wear a Milli Starr percher to the Belmont Stakes. Understandably different from the traditional Derby hat, this style is so easy to wear and really brings your racing outfit to another level!"
~ Bri M.

“I am so grateful to Laura for creating my dream hat for Royal Ascot. I have learned so much in this process and I am in awe of the talent and skill it takes to create something so magical! Thank you for such an amazing experience and beautiful headpiece!”
~ Bridget S.

"From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making our wedding day so incredibly special. My hat, my mother’s hat and all of the fascinators were amazing. We received so many compliments… You are a true talent!”
