Londoner Nerida Fraiman launched her Fashion Accessories label in 1997 following a two-year
apprenticeship with Philip Treacy. As apprentice to the Couture Collections, and as Head of Production
for the ready to wear collection, it was here that she perfected the craft of millinery.

After launching her own label, Nerida moved to Paris, where her designs were received with
much enthusiasm. It was during this time that she created the highly acclaimed feather headpieces
for the Paris National Opera. Returning to London a year later, her Collections were
bought by Harvey Nichols, Fortnum & Mason, Fenwick, The Cross, Koh Samui and The Fashion

In 1999 she received 1st Prize in the Debenhams/R.C.A. Hat Competition, and 1st Prize in the
Omega Competition. In 2000 she was awarded an M.A. in Accessory Design from the Royal
College of Art. Since then, she has worked on designs for Furla, Sonja Nuttall, and the National
Museum of Ireland, collaborated with Tristan Webber on his Spring/Summer 2004 Accessories
Collection and exhibited at London Fashion Week.

Her trademark feathers and pleated crin combined with diamante, lace and other materials, give
each piece a unique and luxurious feel, perfect for weddings, parties or The Races. Nerida Fraiman's
designs are regularly featured in the press including Vogue, Tatler, Harpers, Elle and You
Magazine. She designs a ready-to-wear collection which is sold in the UK and internationally and
