We have been going through the archives and have discovered incredible original hat designs by Madge Chard. These design books show how customers’ hat shapes were created and logged. Why not get creative and use these beautiful designs as fun colouring in pages. Please share your creations with us by tagging us on instagram #vvrouleaux.

Madge Chard was a Mayfair milliner in the 50’s and Annabel was given her design books by Ernest Gelbard when he closed his South Molton Street shop. Extraordinarily Annabel’s mother worked there!
There is also a great film of Madge Chard. The commentary may be a little dated but her ideas are perfect if you are going a little stir-crazy with the kids…
