Bridget combines intriguing ideas and observations of the natural world with her very particular textile and millinery skills. She works from a studio in south London and her artworks have been exhibited at the V&A, Somerset House and the Royal Academy.

Her first millinery collection in 1984 was for Jean Muir and she later co-founded Bailey Tomlin Millinery (1989–2010), selling to clients from Liberty to Saks Fifth Avenue.
