Award winning milliner Caithriona King had royal inspiration for her latest collection of statement headpieces.
The Galway-based milliner looked to stylish Kate Middleton for influence when designing her new season collection.
Caithriona, who was the recipient of the Irish Fashion Innovation Award for Millinery admits she has always had a penchant for regal fashion and is a big fan of the Duchess of Cambridge's elegant and refined style.
In homage, Caithriona has designed an ‘Inspired By.. Kate Middleton’ collection of headpieces truly fit for a princess.
The range includes a selection timeless pieces in both rich colours and more neutral shades, all very classic and all very Kate.
The collection is comprised of a variety of pillbox styles to suit varying face shapes, personalities, outfits and occasions.
“I think many of us can relate to Kate Middleton’s style. It’s very classy and she really makes wearing a headpiece look effortless, inspiring a lot of ladies to don a hat," Caithriona says. "I started to receive a number of requests to emulate hats that Kate had worn so creating an ‘Inspired By.. Kate Middleton’ Collection seemed like the perfect inspiration for my new collection."

Caithriona perfected her skills by training at the prestigious Wombourne School of Millinery in London.
The busy mother-of-four has a national portfolio of customers, who flock to her when looking for a bespoke head-turner for special occasions, weddings, race meets or fashion events. Each creation is bespoke and made by hand so you receive an exclusive headpiece.
Prices in the ‘Inspired By.. Kate Middleton’ collection start from €120.
