Hats for Hire

Hat Hire

You may prefer to hire a hat for your special occasion or event, this is generally less costly than purchasing a hat which you may only wear once or twice. By hiring a hat, you have more choice available to you so you can coordinate the hat with your outfit. We also offer a range of accessories, such as wraps, scarves and brooches, which are available to purchase.

Prices for hire range from £38.00 to £125.00. The hat hire fee is for one wear/one day only, with the hire duration period being 3 days; additional charges may be applied for hats which are returned late.

If you require the hat for a longer period, please contact me, to discuss your needs and I can advise you of the hire cost.

I can post (excluding the month of June) hats for hire after receiving payment and signing of the contract. Hats are dispatched by next day delivery, to your chosen address. Postage is added to the hire charge.

All details, payment and the contract must be completed before the hat is posted. The hat will leave in perfect condition and it must return in the hat box in the same condition. All hat boxes must be returned.

When returning the hat, proof of postage is recommended, along with sending the hat with postage insurance for any damage caused during transit.

The hirer will be asked to sign an agreement at the time of booking. If the hat is lost or damaged, then the amount payable is the value of the hat plus an extra hire charge. The agreement states the value to replace the item if it is lost, stolen or damaged (including any dents, loss of decoration or water damage). The value is paid to Jessica Anstey by the customer should this happen.

Debit/Credit card details will be taken as a form of deposit and will only be deducted accordingly after discussion with the hirer and myself.

Payment for hire of hat is made at the time of booking and card details kept in a safe place and destroyed on completion of hire.

Cancellation of the hire of a hat must be made no less than one week before the event for a refund to be issued.

I understand that the English weather is inevitable, but care should be taken when wearing a hat/headpiece in the rain and should be kept under an umbrella at all times. All hats/headpieces are very vulnerable when subjected to rain. Also, care should be taken with regard to makeup and hair styling products, so they do not stain or mark the hat.

If lost/damaged in any way (ie; trim fallen off, dents, water damage or any traces of makeup) the full price of the hat will be charged to the customer.

About Jessica Anstey

Jessica Anstey Designs was founded in 2009 having studied fashion Design at Cheltenham art college. I worked within the fashion trade during the 90's before having children and moving to the countryside to bring up my family.

I design, and along with my team hand cut, and hand make each item. Working closely with the client from beginning to end perfecting an individual design to suit each specification for that personal occasion.

I have a true passion for beautiful fabrics and adornments and my desire to work with these materials and return to the ever changing wonderful world of fashion has brought me back to where I am now! My philosophy is to create pieces which reflect personality and style for the individual client.

My designs are classic, stylish, bespoke and truly elegant.
