Experienced patternmaker Gemma starting making hat samples for her son in 2015 as she couldn’t find anything bold and different to the norm. Fast forward a few years and after the arrival of her second child, Gemma decided to try the ‘hat thing’ as it has been lovingly described by those closest to her.
Gemma’s impressive resume includes work for Carla Zampatti, as well as high end heavyweights Toni Maticevski and Dion Lee. With a young family, working long hours for a designer was not going to work anymore. Now the long hours are spent on her couch or home studio working on myz! Being a highly technical patternmaker, the more technical the better for Gemma. She loves the finer details of getting the peaks of the hats to sit just right. Every single pattern piece matches and fits together down to the last millimetre.
myz’s vision has always been to make it as exciting to buy kids hats as it is to buy kids clothes. myz takes bold, fresh twists on traditional styles. With a focus on quality over quantity, the products last and can be handed down rather than thrown out. A myz hat is fun to wear and produced in a way that is kind to the word we live in.
