Hot news about Hatastic!

Chloe Hayward designs chic, wearable and eco-friendly millinery pieces for a range of occasions - going by the name of Hatastic! I first heard about Chloe via Handmade UK and was thrilled when she agreed to answer some questions as part of the Answers on a Postcard zine project.

I'm excited to hear that Hatastic! is making its catwalk debut in the next 24 hours, so if you're in or around London, head on over to Spitalfields to see these beautiful pieces up close and personal. You might even snag some goodies if you're an early bird!

Full details are available on, or hear hot news from the horse's mouth at, and you can snap up your own showstopper just in time for wedding season in the Hatastic folksy shop.
