Master milliner Jeanette Sendler’s work is inspired by the history of fashion. She undertook  theatrical training through the millinery departments of establishments such as the English National Opera, Scottish Opera and the Sidney Opera House and completed classes with renowned theatrical milliner, Jane Smith. As well as regular commissions from individuals, she has recently designed headwear for the Citizens Theatre and the Scottish National Theatre. A wide selection of styles is available at Hat in the Cat, Bridgend, Perth. Jeanette is regularly in the shop and is happy to discuss commissions if you don’t see exactly what you want.
