  • Welcome to Michela's workshop where you'll learn to make your own beret. Michela, an experienced fashion designer originally from Italy, invites you to join her for a creative and hands-on experience.

    Michela will start by introducing herself and her brand "Laughter in the rain", which combines style with sustainability. With over a decade of experience and a background studying in both Italy and the UK, Michela brings a unique perspective to her designs.

    In this workshop you'll have the opportunity to choose the fabric for your beret and learn how to measure your head size to ensure a perfect fit. Michela will then guide you through the process of placing the pattern and cutting out the fabric.

    Next, you'll learn essential sewing techniques as you assemble your beret. Michela will also show you how to make the trim to add a personal touch to your creation.

    Finally, you'll assemble all the pieces to complete your beret. With Michela's guidance, you'll leave the workshop with a stylish and handmade beret to wear with pride.

    Join Michela and get ready to unleash your inner designer and take home your own unique beret!

    Milliner

    Originally from Italy, Michela pursued her passion for fashion design by studying in both Italy and the UK. In 2015, she made the bold decision to relocate to London.

    During her time in the UK, Michela had the incredible opportunity to study under the guidance of esteemed milliner Rose Cory MBE, honing her skills and refining her craft. With her new-found expertise, Michela embarked on a journey of collaboration with some of the biggest names in fashion, including Misa Harada, Mackintosh and Lock & Co. Her exceptional talent caught the attention of celebrities and even members of the British Royal Family.

    With a decade of experience under her belt, Michela decided to take her passion to the next level by launching her own handmade fashion label, "Laughter in the rain". Through a successful Kickstarter campaign, she garnered support for her vision of combining style with sustainability. Inspired by her multicultural background and diverse influences, Michela's designs are a true reflection of her unique perspective and innovative approach to fashion.

    From elegant hats to stunning gowns, Michela's creations are characterised by impeccable craftsmanship and timeless elegance. With 'Laughter in the rain', she invites you to explore a world where fashion meets sustainability, and where each piece tells a story of creativity, dedication and passion.
