British milliner Gina Foster has been quietly making hats for savvy Londoners for several years but it was when she opened her Kensington boutique in 2010 that the milliner really found her stride. Now she’s the regular go-to for any woman in need of a chic head-turner. So it’s no surprise – and this is an exclusive – that Foster has been commissioned to make ‘quite a number’ of hats for the royal wedding. Discretion being of utmost importance, Foster will not disclose which heads she is dressing (but might we see The Queen herself in one of Foster’s creations on the big day?).
