A delicate touch

  • • Candela creates handcrafted women's accessories
  • • She aims to evoke emotion with her pieces
  • • Through her creations, she expresses her search for freedom

Candela Cort makes hats, necklaces, headdresses, bracelets, and collars, which combine modern and ancient styles but, above all, which show her search for freedom and love for intuition. Candela has a degree in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid and she took a course in millinery at the London Fashion School. “When I was a child, I did all kinds of handicrafts. This skill developed into a hobby until it became a way of living,” she says and remembers that her first hat was a Lycra necklace. “When I went to take it off, I realized that it worked very well on my head. From that moment on, I started my career as a milliner”. In 1997 she had her first exhibition in Madrid. Since then she has shown her work in museums, galleries, and fashion shows around the world. Her hats have also been paraded in films, operas, and at royal weddings.
