WHO ARE THE GOLD HATTED LOVERS?
The Gold Hatted Lovers are Katie-Louise Ford and Tim Nicol, a couple from Sydney, Australia. We have spent the last year together dreaming of this new venture and it has finally all clicked into place.
An exciting aspect of our label is the opportunity to collaborate with independant artists and designers who, like us, are attempting to create something special and unique which they can share with the world.
Australian Clothing designer and seamstress, Katie-Louise has lived and worked in Brisbane, Melbourne, New York, and Sydney. Katie has a history in costume design and handmade clothing, having run an independent label for 5 years previous to this project. With a love for sideshows and showgirls, our first collection of 1930s inspired clothing hits the spot.

Tim is a vintage hoarder and avid hunter of the obscure and rare. Having just finished a University degree in Art History and Theory, The Gold Hatted Lovers is Tim's new creative outlet. A lover of literature, films, and decorative arts from the first half of the 20th century, the menswear range in the Lovers Limited Collection is an exciting opportunity for Tim to have the crazy clothing of dreams and old photographs come to life.
