Rachael Jayne Nixon,Owner of Chanix Millinery

Rachael began her career as a children’s nurse. Her interest in millinery came after she moved back home from a spell working in Saudi Arabia, where she’d bought a large and expensive ‘hatinator’ to attend a race day organised by the British Embassy.

On her flight home, the hatinator was accidentally destroyed by another passenger. As she had several weddings to attend that year, Rachael, who’s been into crafts since childhood, ended up making a replacement herself because she couldn't find any she liked and matched her outfits.

The business began when she posted a photo of it on Facebook and got two orders for more! Since then she spent three years teaching herself the traditional millinery skills before studying it formally at Glasgow Clyde College .

In a short time, Rachael has become an international award-winning milliner, including first place at the Lincoln International Millinery Competition, Best Hat at a Melbourne Cup event in Australia and Finalist for Amazing New Business Innovator in No1 Magazine's Amazing Women Awards 2020.
