Alongside their ever-changing range of seasonal cut flowers, prepared hand-tied bouquets and bespoke floral designs, Bob and Denise Palmer at The B&D Flower Company now have an additional point of interest on their stand in the Flower Market.
Pop along to unit B15 and be inspired by the array of brilliant Sequin Souls London hats, created by the couple’s daughter Charlie. Whether you’re looking for a fabulous personalised Cowboy Hat, that special item to top off your Drag Queen outfit, something fancy for a festival, or you want to glam-up your hen-do or wedding, Charlie’s bespoke designs are just the ticket.
“She’s been doing this for two years now,” said Denise, “and we thought it would be a bit of fun to collaborate and show off some of the hats in the Market. We’re not selling them, just giving them a showcase – Charlie sells through Etsy, Not on the High Street and her own website, so we’re pointing people in that direction.”
Sequin Souls London has made a real splash and tapped in nicely to the trend for rhinestone and sequin heavy cowboy styles that the likes of Beyonce have driven in recent times. “It all started during lockdown, when Charlie did a cowboy themed party for six people, for my birthday,” Denise added. “She makes them all herself. Now, she’s selling a lot in the USA and she’s had several very high-profile clients already, which is great for publicity on social media.
“Whether people just want their name in sequins on a cowboy hat, or they want a top hat, feather boas or 70s visors, she creates something special for everyone.”
The hats are also serving another purpose in the Market. “It’s been a bit miserable lately,” Denise said. “But more than one client has stopped to say that the hats have cheered them up and put a smile on their face.”
