judybentincklogoJudy Bentinck set up her own label in 2002. Originally named “Portland Hats”, she has recently re-branded as “Judy Bentinck” to emphasize the exclusivity of her product.
She gained her degree in printed textiles at Liverpool College of Art, then later moved into the world of costume design, working for the RSC, the BBC and the Royal Opera House.
Judy made her first hat while teaching costume design at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and her passion for the exciting sculptural aspects of millinery led her to train with Rose Cory – Royal Warrant Holder and world renowned teacher.
