Catherine Cooke has been designing and making hats since 1992. She initially trained and worked in Belgium for three years with Elvis Pompilio, before working in London and then on to Australia where she worked in the Sydney Opera House and with Moray Millinery.
On her return to Dublin she worked with Jacinta Fahy on Wicklow Street before setting up her own label in 1996.
Her success and reputation has come from a long lasting passion for her trade and a desire to create a hat that suits the client, compliments the outfit and becomes the occasion. Her service and craftsmanship has attracted a wide and discerning client list.
She lives in Dublin with her husband and two children.
