About Us

After studies in Fashion + Textile Design and Community Development; and a shared passion for designing unique racewear, friends Rosey Phelan and Jenelle Basten formalised Maker Millinery in Kalgoorlie in 2015. 

Since that time they have expanded the label to include bridal pieces, an everyday casual range and a series of demi-millinery pieces for bridal showers and hens parties.

In 2018 they launched their first pop-up spring racing concept store in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia; and on their online store. This includes ready-to-wear Maker Millinery pieces, Olga Berg clutches and millinery, preloved racewear and jewellery. 

2018 also saw Maker Millinery enter the invitation-only national millinery award at Oaks Day for the first time. They were thrilled to make the top 20 in a competitive field of 60. 

We firmly believe that every occasion is a headwear occasion and we look forward to creating a piece to complete your next outfit.
