Joanna Zara makes, mends and redesigns hats at her studio in Brighton, Sussex, England. A milliner with 15+ years of experience she won a competition with Lock & Co, hatters of London and designed the "Prospect" fedora to raise funds for Brain Tumour Research. Our discussion talks about fashions, inherited hats, the hat industry, Mad Hatters and much more. In the cover image for this episode you can see Joanna in her fedora and some of my family photos from a 1960s wedding.
