A BESPOKE COMMISSION
F&B is always designing new styles to add to the F&B collections of hats, fascinators and headpieces. All the designs shown on the website can be made to order in other colours or alternative materials, or be adapted to suit individual tastes.
However, if you are unable to find exactly what you're looking for in the various sections of F&B website, why not consider having a unique 'one-off' original piece of millinery designed just for you.
F&B offers an 'Online Bespoke Service' - Ladies can email their details along with pictures of their outfit and send in colour/fabric samples for matching to. We will discuss styles, designs, trims etc. Colour and fabric samples (once matched) will be sent to you to make sure you're happy with them.
Pictures will be emailed to you throughout the whole process for you to check how your piece of millinery is coming along and for you to give feedback and make any adjustments or changes. It's a very easy and enjoyable process.
Bespoke designs may take a little longer to make due to the design work involved, on average please allow 3-6 weeks. This also allows for ordering the necessary materials, etc.
Prices for bespoke millinery will vary depending on the individual design, a quote will be given before work commences but often it is only possible to give guide prices.
A deposit is required at time of booking a 'made to order bespoke' piece of millinery - 50% of estimated full price. Balance is due on completion.
F&B are happy to make changes, alterations or make additional trims, add materials etc to suit customers requests. However, any changes/additions made by the customer throughout the design process may/will be added on to the quote/price of the finished millinery piece.
All 'bespoke made to order' millinery is posted out to you in a lovely and well packaged hat box. The hat box is also very well packaged. Delivery service is via Royal Mail - Special Delivery/tracked and signed or Parcelforce48 (for larger hat boxes) - tracked.
If an order for a 'bespoke made to order' piece of millinery is cancelled and a deposit has been received - Deposits are 'non refundable' as orders for the materials will have been placed with suppliers and materials will have been paid for, received and work commenced on your design.
