S4E10: Millinery with Jane Taylor

In this last episode of season four, Liz is joined by leading British milliner, Jane Taylor. Jane’s fashion-forward pieces and avant-garde creations have made her synonymous with British millinery. Her sculptural hats and headpieces are highly coveted among an elite circle of London style icons and she even has a number of royal clientele, including the Duchess of Cambridge, Zara Tindall, the Countess of Wessex and Princess Eugenie. Jane joins Liz in the Wellbeing studios to share the history of British millinery, her design process and her top tips for looking great throughout the summer season ahead.
