    Lock & Co. is delighted to have appointed Awon Golding as Head Millinery Designer for our Couture collections.   

     Awon brings a wealth of experience in the millinery industry with her creative talent, and has been recognised by the British Fashion Council when she was invited to showcase at London Fashion Week. She counts The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan, Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue amongst her clients, and is known for her unique and beautiful head pieces and hats that are modern and inspired by catwalk trends.

    Awon draws on her multicultural heritage and experience of living in a variety of different countries to design dynamic headpieces. Working with bold shapes to create dramatic silhouettes, each piece is handcrafted in store incorporating traditional and unconventional materials and techniques.

    “It is an absolute honour to be heading up the millinery department at Lock & Co. Hatters. The brand is an incredible British heritage brand synonymous with quality and craftsmanship and I’m looking forward to applying my creative talents to the seasonal range. I have reached back into the archives and breathed new life into classic Lock shapes, whilst also adding my own modern aesthetic to the collection. It’s a synergy I’m very excited to share with the world." Awon Golding, Head Millinery Designer
