Hawick's milliner to the stars

A milliner who designs hats for royalty and the rich and famous has set up a new base in Hawick.

Yvette Jelfs has chosen the former mill town for her workshop and design studio.

Her couture hats have been worn by fashionistas around the world, but she is tight-lipped on some of her more famous clients:

"Well we have a very good clientele list but we don't sort of, you know, people come to us because they like the fact we are probably quite quiet and tucked away.

"What people do like is that we have got the river right outside next door, watching herons and this, that and the other but our clientele list actually travel quite a long way to see us which is fantastic.”
