It's brilliant to see people wearing my hats at the races



I design hats at my studio in Leitrim and I have a showroom there as well.

A lot of women will travel down to visit me at the studio and discuss what kind of design they want, but I sell lots of hats over the internet as well.

I go to a lot of race meetings and it's funny when I see someone wearing one of my hats. I often tip them on the shoulder and introduce myself as it's nice to meet customers who I have dealt with over the phone or through email.

I've been lucky enough to have a good few well-known faces wear my designs over the past few years.

Most recently, Vogue Williams wore a red hat of mine to launch Ladies Day at Fairyhouse.

Other famous women who have worn my hats include Rosanna Davison (right), Pippa O'Connor, Claire Byrne, Sile Seoige and actress Aoibhinn Garrihy.

It's wonderful to see my designs in the paper or in a magazine.

Ever since I won on Wednesday I've been inundated with enquiries, which is brilliant.
