Giulia MIO Millinery
Giulia Mio is an Italian award-winning couture milliner devoted to making sophisticated hats and headpieces from the finest materials, with an immaculate finish. All her creations are unique and aspirational, designed to flatter the face and enhance the personality of her clients.
After studying Set and Costume Design in Venice and Milan, she learned millinery for haute couture and theatre in Rome, Milan and Zurich. She has been trained as a traditional milliner by renowned teachers and practitioners across Europe. However, her artistic soul leans towards new experimental techniques using innovative materials. She created the brand – ‘Giulia Mio Haute Couture Millinery’ - in 2015, and since then her name has become synonymous with inspirational designs, exceptional quality and bespoke service.
From her Maker’s Yard studio in Leicester’s Cultural Quarter, at every stage in the creative process, Giulia provides the customer with a totally immersive and unique creative and buying experience. Giulia currently designs an average of two capsule collections annually, with some bridal and ceremonial additions.
She is currently collaborating with exclusive fashion designers, creating bespoke headwear for their collections, but her true passion continues to be working with her private clients creating unique pieces suitable for any occasion.
