Promoting British made millinery, with an emphasis on high quality finish, distinctive styles, and ethical sourcing of materials

Milliners’ Guild only stocks high quality, British made millinery. It aims to give established and emerging milliners a bricks and mortar location to sell their work and customers a quality assurance. We provide training and mentoring to both aspiring student milliners and established milliners, as well as providing a wide range of millinery to stage and screen.
Our Bristol boutique is led by Milliners’ Guild founder & milliner, Ani Stafford- Townsend

  • International Talk Like a Pirate Day! I love a pirate! This is a photo from our pirate themed engagement party 9 years ago. When we were young, carefree & wrinkle free (ish!). Don your favourite tricorn and talk your best Bristolian accent today! #millinersguild #pirates #talklikeapirateday #bristolfashion #tricorn
  • A couple of weekends ago we had the weekend away in Dorset. We walked to the top of the hill next to the coast to visit St Catherine's Chapel. It's a 13th chapel which survived the Reformation by being used as a beckon. Still used today, and there was a very moving poignant shrine inside. On the outside, it was immensely windy! #dorset #chapel #bobo
  • I bought this bureau in the mid 90s when dark wood was deeply out of fashion. I stripped it down and oiled it. I've moved it around to various student houses, flats & studios. It took a battering in the last move & lost a leg! Today's job was to fix it back together, ready for at least another 20 years with me. Do you have a favourite piece of furniture that has moved around with you? #restored #oldfurniture #veneer #mahogany #wellloved #sundaytasks
  • It's Sustainable Transport Day today. This headpiece is from the End of the World collection and was inspired by the need to develop more sustainable transport options. Created using used bicycle parts from #bristolbikeproject and other remnant materials.
