Outback milliner Felicity 'Flic' Brown is on a mission. She's taking her latest collection of unique hats and fantastic headpieces to New York for Fashion Week, ready to take on the world, one hat at a time! The story of a remarkable journey from the remote red dirt of the Kimberley to the bright city lights of New York. A journey about creativity, a passion for fashion, remote places, big cities, overcoming obstacles and following your dream.
Flic began creating hats on outback cattle and sheep stations and now works from her studio in Broome, creating fabulous headwear, each piece a one-off adorned with feathers collected by hand and pearls grown locally in the south sea waters. Her creations are now a firm fixture and feature prominently at the annual Broome Races. As the ‘Milliner on the Move’ she travels far and wide with her collections, from remote cattle stations to inner Sydney homes, the ultimate destination being New York Fashion Week in 2016 where she was the first Australian milliner to showcase a collection on the runway.
