Hats top off a fascinating career

Bendigo Weekly | Bendigo Weekly | 26-Oct-2017


Local designer Alysha Elliott has dedicated herself to hat design and millinery since she studied fashion design and technology at Bendigo Senior Secondary College.

Now 22, Alysha later graduated from her studies in fashion design at RMIT.

At the same time, she completed internships at several Melbourne labels. 

Her talent has been recognised by Becky Gray who has an online millinery shop, IvyJane.

“I noticed Alysha’s flair for hat design at last year’s Bendigo Cup,” Ms Gray said.

“She was a finalist in the best hat award and I thought I would love her to come on board so I could represent her.

“Her designs incorporate 3D printed with traditional millinery techniques.”

Ms Elliott has seven bespoke pieces which are available on line or at Soho in Bath Lane.

“You don’t have to shop in Melbourne for a hat for the races this year,”Ms Gray said.

“They’re available right here in Bendigo.”
