Catherine grew up in Tasmania, where she would watch her grandparents and friends get ready for a day at the races, noting how their hats completed their look and made them feel bold and beautiful. These memories stayed with Quartermain, and as she started attending the races herself, she wanted to start creating show-stopping pieces of her own. Drawing inspiration from her interior design background and love of the tradition of this artisan craft, hats became Quartermain’s focus. After studying at Kangan under Serena Lindeman and working at Kim Fletcher Millinery Art, Quartermain now wants to create conversation, inspiration and new traditions with her hats.
