Born in Melbourne, Australia, Genevieve Foddy’s passion for languages led to a job at the New York offices of Prada where she developed an appreciation for modern classic style. Moving to London to pursue a career in design, she studied millinery at the London College of Fashion, where she developed mastery over the refined styles and techniques of British society millinery.
Genevieve has worked for renowned milliners Gina Foster in London, and Albertus Swanepoel in New York and her work has been seen on British society ladies, the Royal Family and the runways of New York Fashion Week.
In 2011 Genevieve returned to New York and established Cappellino Millinery. Specializing in impeccably hand-crafted hats, fascinators and wedding hair accessories, Genevieve makes each piece entirely by hand in her Greenwich Village studio, using traditional, couture millinery techniques and beautiful materials.
Her work has has been featured in Vogue, Bridal Guide and Brides Magazine. Marrying English restraint with bold American individualism, Genevieve’s work appeals to the modern romantic.
