Bio:

Francisco Rico is specialized in Haute Couture Millinery Designs. Designing and producing two collections a year, and some concep-collections, working in private commissions, as well as collaborating with some designers.

Born and raised in Seville, Spain, with an education in business. After working in business and management for several international companies during recent years, Francisco's interest in the hat world began in Madrid.

Francisco has been studying Millinery techniques with Rose Cory, in Central Saint Martins and has been graduated in the HND of Millinery in the Kensington and Chelsea College. He works under his own label and has been working for some top London milliners such as Yasmin Rizvi, Piers Atkinson, Noel Stewart and Judy Bentinck.
