Lock & Co.

Made by hand, you’ll be assured of great British artisanship in a centuries-tested craft.
It’s frightfully handy that Rachel Trevor-Morgan’s based so close to Buckingham Palace - she’s the preferred milliner of HRH the Queen, nearly all her hats are handmade and you’ll be assured that her headpieces will be in fine company at any given royal wedding. Elegant, statement and with thoroughbred English DNA lining every design, Trevor-Morgan is the go to milliner of the British aristocracy.
