Rivka's Millinery Story

Rivka has been a milliner for over ten years. She studied Couture Millinery at Kensington and Chelsea College before training as an apprentice for renowned milliner Edwina Ibbotson. She has since gone on to make hats for the singer Chaka Khan and for the television programme The X Factor.

Rivka opened her shop Rivka Jacobs Millinery in Exeter in 2016. In this time she has built up a loyal customer base across Devon and the South-West as well as sending hats and fascinators all over the world. Being located in Exeter has enabled Rivka to take inspiration for her hats from the beautiful Devon countryside.

Rivka Jacobs Millinery is in the heart of Exeter's creative hub. She has her studio at the back of the shop where she creates her wonderful designs. Rivka uses colour with confidence, mixing traditional millinery skills with modern ideas. She creates a bespoke hat to colour match your outfit and add elegance and style for your special day. In discussion with Rivka you can help design headwear that is uniquely your own. 

I find it such an honour to make hats and fascinators for such special occasions
