If it isn't fun, it isn't millinery


Hi I am Nadia and this is my label "Bettie Lou"!

Ever since I was a little child, I was fascinated by fashion - especially clothes from the past. Dressing up was one of my favourite things to do and as far as I can remember, I have always been experimenting with different styles.
When I got older, I found myself as a fan of the gothic style which I stuck to for quite a while.
It was also the first time I got into millinery when I made a small top hat for one of my outfits. My technique back then was of course rather dilettante but I found joy in fashioning small pieces.

After graduation however I worked several years at an office until one day I came to notice that there was a millinery academy in Graz which I eventually joined.  My training took two years until I graduated “with excellent success”

In spring of 2018 I went to the UK to deepen my skills. I spent a couple of days in London at Bridget Bailey’s studio and a whole month at the studio of Jenny Roberts where I learned British hat techniques and all about detail.

Since I have been a fan of vintage clothes for several years by now, it is no wonder that many of my pieces reflect this passion.

This is why I chose "Bettie Lou" (an old- fashioned name but with a certain cuteness to it) for my label.
The "Bettie" ending with "ie" and not with the rather common "y" is a homage to one of my idols; Bettie Page.

- handmade uniques
