Meet your milliner
Maria Etkind is a Panamanian graphic designer, fine artist, and New Orleans based milliner.
After living in New Orleans for 13 years, in 2014 she moved to The Hague, The Netherlands where she discovered the art of millinery. Upon taking her first course in hat making, a new passion was born. In the Winter of 2017 she moved back to New Orleans, Louisiana to open her own couture millinery studio.
Custom couture hats
Maria creates custom hats for many special events like the Kentucky Derby, The Royal Ascot, Mardi Gras parades, weddings, special events, and luncheons. When you enquire about buying a hat, you’ll experience a personal consultation. The event, your desired style, your outfit, and a complimentary color-way will be discussed to find the perfect custom designed piece for you.
Couture orders are handmade and take 2-6 weeks, depending on style and material availability. It is advisable to book your orders in the late summer for Carnival, and well in advance for other seasonal events, although Maria is accommodating to help you with finding a solution for surprise events.
