She has shown her work at London Fashion Week, The Irish Fashion Awards and at a multitude of fashion shows over the years. She has made hats which have won Best Dressed Lady competitions all over Ireland.

Her new signature ‘Bláthanna Gloine’ or ‘Glassy flowers’ collection  has combined the finest responsibly sourced nappa lambs skin, Swarovski wirework and eye catching shapes, to create a signature style unlike any other Milliner’s work in Northern Ireland. Gráinne’s millinery is a slow craft, sustainably produced by hand, in predominantly one-off designs. 

The Gráinne Maher Millinery studio is just off the Cathedral Quarter in Belfast, by appointment only. Gráinne produces sophisticated pieces for Mother of the bride/groom, wedding guests, investitures and race-goers using classic shapes, hand-dyed feathers and couture embellishments. 

GMM headwear has graced the pages of ELLE UK,, Harpers Bazaar China, Tatler, The Irish Times Magazine, as well as numerous online magazines including Razor Red, TIRADE, and EDITORIAL NY.
