Welcome to Allport Millinery!
For those of you who don't know me, my name is Sophie Allport and I am a young Milliner located in Brisbane, QLD.
I am a country girl at heart and I have always loved attending the races, whether it's a dusty dirt track in the country or the preened green turf at Flemington.
I am so pleased that you have decided to play a small part in my creative dream, even if it is just by clicking into my website for a browse!
I have always enjoyed turning my hand to trying new creative pursuits, be it painting, sculpture, crafting, cooking and decorating. When i found millinery i found the perfect outlet for this creativity and have thoroughly enjoyed honing my skills over the years. Each design I create is lovingly cut, blocked, twisted, trimmed, sewn and lined by hand using traditional and modern Millinery techniques.
Over the last two years i have been honoured to join the Hat Academy Team as a Teacher among some of the best milliners from around the world where i can now teach students globally from the comfort of their own home or studio. I now have three different lessons available on this fantastic platform which can be previewed on the "Learn Millinery" section of the website.
Thank you for coming and taking the time to have a look at the range of pieces I have created for this coming Racing Season.
I hope that they bring you the same happiness they bring to me during the process where raw materials meet reality.
Love and best wishes
