Country Gentleman beats the heat!

This weather is making me reach for my wide brimmed straw hat sure to beat this heat!! I am talking about the FAB Country Gentleman! Take him to the beach, poolside, or lounging at home on your porch or deck! I HIGHLY recommend this topper because it is made of panama straw in an 8" brim and it is so light weight!!! Beat the heat and sun and look SUPER stylish in this one of a kind hat!

EDUCATING the client is VITAL!

I just read an article about famed Philip Treacy being outraged by cheaply made fascinators being produced out of China and the popularity of them in High Street fashion. After reading the article I felt compelled to comment on this latest fashion craze of mass produced fascinators, if you will! It is VITAL for any milliner who has studied the craft to EDUCATE the consumer on the process of millinery. We take for granted that people understand what it is we do. This is a HIGHLY SPECIALIZED form of ART and TRUE craftsmanship that not only myself but other milliners would agree to. What we do can not even compete with a mass produced fascinator made in China. The time, quality of materials used, craftsmanship and artist's skilll to create a vision unique to his/her client are all KEY components of MILLINERY. We craftsmen take pride in our highly specialized trade but it is up to every designer to market their product effectively to our clients so that they appreciate what we do and have a clear understanding. We cannot take for granted that everyone was raised with a well-versed cultural background. EDUCATION is the KEY to a milliner's success! It is VITAL!
