Lisa - Milliner & Host
Delisa Creative Retreats was formed out of Lisas desire to bring women together, in a creative setting, mixing travel with the pursuit of balanced well being .Lisa is a creative, eco friendly, fun loving mum of 6 (yes I said six!) and step mum to another gorgeous girl, who also has a daughter of her own - So she's also a very proud nanny!
Although she has always sewn, up cycled and made thrifty finds into tomorrows treasures - her passion for making hats started in 2004, when she couldn't find the perfect hat for a very good friend, so she decided to make one! It took her weeks of espionage to get her friends head size and just as long to perfect the pattern. She still wears the hat today and has many more 'délisa' hats in her collection.
Long before she started making hats, she studied patchwork and silk painting. She's been making bags for many, many years and her passion for sewing, designing, painting and creating keeps her designs and creations evolving.
Born in the UK, she is now blessed with living in the south of France, just outside Cannes. Many of her designs are inspired by France and the Riviera lifestyle with a little twist of her British roots.
