Henty Machinery Field Days: Henty Natural Fibre Fashion Awards
Karen has won the prestigious Henty Millinery Award for her Gold and Dove Grey Boater.
Excerpt: Ms Hyde has been a feature of the fibre fashion for the past three years and impressed the judges with her handmade design.
“I’ve been lucky to be in the finals before, but haven’t won so it’s very exciting,” she said.
“It’s all completely handmade, the flowers are handmade silk roses, no machines are used.
“The roses take a very long time because each petal must be done separately – luckily I enjoy it.”
