In 2005, Liz Cohoe, now sole owner and designer of Lillie & Cohoe, moved production into a 1930’s warehouse in the heart of Nelson. The airy studio-showroom, located far from the pressures of metropolitan life, allows Cohoe to freely explore design ideas and create hats that stand apart from the mainstream. All women are beautiful and Cohoe understands that the proper colour, texture, shape and volume can highlight a woman’s best feature. “I was exhibiting in Calgary on year,” recounts Cohoe, “when two women approached my display. They both wanted to try on hats, but one was reluctant – she felt that she was too plain, that hats looked bad on her. I suggested a couple of styles and after trying on the second hat, the woman stood there silently. Then she turned to her friend, and whispered ‘I’m beautiful’. They both had tears in their eyes.”

Despite the seclusion of Nelson, Cohoe is able to stay abreast of the industry through media and city visits. The Lillie & Cohoe collection is available at fine retail locations across Canada and the United States.
