About Phillip

Phillip is known as one of Australia's Master Milliners. One of the last Australian milliners to receive traditional workshop training, Phillip developed his craft whilst working in Australia and in London.

Whilst in London, Phillip's work with Europe's largest Costumiers, Berman and Nathan saw him undertake projects for Euro-Disney, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Cameron Mackintosh.  A stint with English outfitter Herbert Johnston provided exposure to a celebrity clientele including Kylie Minogue, Joan Collins and Joanna Lumley just to name a few.

Phillip Rhodes Hats have been stocked in major stores across Australia since 1992 alongside Phillip’s made-to-measure practice.

Phillip continues to combine fashion headwear with an aligned career in the theatre. He is the house milliner at the Melbourne Theatre Company, Victoria Opera and The Australian Ballet.

Images of Phillip's fashion hats have been featured in Australian Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Marie Claire.

About the Workshop

You will make a contemporary and very ultra modern fedora hat from a Buntal Capeline and a surprise trimming at the end.

Prep work

Before the class, please block crown on a dome (I used a longer oval shaped block)

Brim could also be blocked on a semi droop brim to just achieve a nice, smooth, blocked-out surface. (headfit can be flat to block as we will shape it in class)
