Niav Riley Millinery label was established in 2003. After many very successful years in the business with many Race Meeting Winners, and a steady flow of returning and new clients, the label Niav Riley had secured a strong position in the designer marketplace. 

However an evolving business must always listen to what the clients wants, and about 5 years ago many enquiries started to trickle in asking me if I taught Millinery. I had never considered this as a direction for the business to travel in, but I listened and provided.

In September 2019 I moved my business to Creative Space Studio (a shared workspace) with my friend and colleague, Danielle from ‘Naturally at the Wrens Nest’.

We shared a vision of working each in our own businesses but also in a collaborative manner. Since moving here in 2019 we have established:

"I’ve been attending courses with Niav for several years now. She is a Millinery master.
I cannot recommend Niav enough, or her wonderful (really well priced) blocks."
"I was completely hooked by Niav’s lovely manner and excellent Millinery skills! Niav was instrumental in me launching my business! "
"Within one year, one of my hats won 1st place in Naas “ Best Dressed Lady. “ I have just created two specially commissioned pieces for Royal Ascot. "
