Natalie's bespoke millinery label- Natalie Bikicki- is stocked in Australia is major department store MYER.
"My Millinery labels Natalilouise Millinery & Natalie Bikicki are inspired by my desire to create beautiful things. Working with texture and colour, imagination, romance, and above all, evoking the elegance and seduction of old world art and design.
There is something about using ones hands to create art that is intoxicating, when I have the rainbow of colourful soft fabrics and laces, juxtaposed with leather, metal and plastics and a hat block in front of me, my imagination runs wild. My hands smooth and stitch the vision I have until the work is ready, and then it is my pleasure to share with you"
