DESIGNER NAME: JAYNE ROSSITER-GILL
Jayne’s intense artistic flair is her life’s passion. Her fascination for fashion, costume, art and needlework has evolved into a love of millinery, which unites her interests perfectly.
Jayne says, “I believe that millinery is an art form: a fusion of fashion, sculpture and art. As a milliner/designer, you have to be able to think and design in a three-dimensional way, and always ensure that your creations are well-proportioned and balanced from every angle.”
Jayne studied millinery, graduated from The London College of Fashion, and began her career working in fashion retail, design and production. She soon focussed on bridal and special-occasion wear, bespoke accessories and of course millinery.
She spent eight years working with couture society milliner Eda Rose, producing collections for Harrods, Selfridges and others, and creating designs for special commissions, such as royal garden parties, weddings and race meetings.This experience proved valuable in achieving her next goal.
In 2005, Jayne established her own label and studio in Oxfordshire, for which she creates bespoke hats, head pieces and hair accessories for prestigious social events. She has produced unique creations for Royal Ascot, Henley Regatta, weddings, parties, promo and magazine photo shoots, and many catwalk shows. Jayne’s friendly one-to-one approach means that she understands her customer’s needs exactly. This enables her to be creative yet focused, which means that her designs are striking and original, but are always matched uniquely to the client. She makes her clients feel special. She does all this while paying attention to detailing, which is the driving force behind her label.
Jayne’s business has grown strongly in the last year. Success has come with many exciting collaborations with magazines, stylists, models and photographers. She is determined to build on this success, with more projects to announce in 2016. Jayne Elizabeth Millinery has featured prominently in many UK and international magazines. These include Asiana Wedding Magazine, Astound Magazine, The Oxford Times, The Oxfordshire Bride and Groom Magazine, Khush Magazine, Black Brides and Beauty, and Giuseppina Magazine.
THE COLLECTION: Fragmentation Collection- the collection features strong sculptural shapes, glamour, and pieces with a definite Gothic influence. Fragments of metal, beadwork, and lace are the main distinctive elements throughout the entire collection, and are combined with tulle, silk and taffeta and velvet. Meticulous attention to detailing and styling synonymous with the brand Jayne Elizabeth Millinery.
