Suburban Turban was founded by milliner Nicky Zip. Nicky trained in millinery at Chelsea and London College of Fashion and has spent 10 years making hats for the Season - Ascot, Henley and Goodwood. In 2005 Nicky Zip won 'Best Hat' at Lingfield Ladies Day and her hats have appeared in 'Hello!' magazine.
Suburban Turban was launched following a GRACE (Gynae-oncology Research and Clinical Excellence - see link) charity fashion show, where several ladies were discussing the real need for fashionable product for hair loss in women. Most women with hair loss feel the need to cover it up, either with a wig or some form of headwear, this maybe viewed as a necessity but our view is that the hat should reflect the woman not the condition.
Katia our model is a Reiki therapist and an inspirational force behind Suburban Turban. Through her generosity of time and empathy for Suburban Turban's fashion ideals, she has a guiding influence on the team. Over the coming months Suburban Turban will expand and promote new designers from Europe and the UK through the site.
Choice and making our clients feel feminine and stylish whatever sort of day they might be having is very important to us. Here at Suburban Turban we select all our styles specifically with hair loss in women in mind, which means our customers can be reassured that all the important practicalities have been considered - secure comfortable fit, breathable cool fabrics, complete coverage etc. With these concerns taken care of, our customers simply need to decide which one and say goodbye to 'bad no hair' days.
