Q&A with Louise Macdonald
What influences your designs? Where do you get your inspiration?
I get inspiration from the fabrics I use. I'm always on the look out for different materials to design hats and fascinators. I might discover new ones and get inspired by the way they can be manipulated or draped. Read the full answer in the About Louise section
When do you start preparing/planning for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival?
February is the time when I start researching clothing styles and colours for the coming season. From there I source materials and progress to creating my millinery collection. By June I am in full swing, producing the designs for my online shop and Hugo Boss woman's wear range. Read the full answer in the About Louise section
