Joining the Milliners Guild and being a part of the textile window.

Maria Etkind

This past summer I joined the Milliners Guild in hopes to grow my millinery network as well as have the opportunity to participate in millinery events and shows.

The Milliners Guild is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to increase the public’s awareness of the skillset and products used in the trade. The organization celebrates this year’s New York Textile Month with a fashionable showcase of beautiful textiles, millinery tools and hats made by its talented members.

I have been part of the guild for a few month’s and have already had the opportunity to help with guild website updates and also was invited along with 23 other guild members to create a hat for a textile window located in the Garment District in NY!

I created a cloche (bell) shaped vintage felt hat using the guild’s brand colors of white coral and black.


Easter Parade 2019 "Bringing back the 60's"

Maria Etkind

This was my first time riding with the Historic French Quarter Parade. The weather was great and my friend and client invited me to ride in her pink Elvis Cadillac. I felt like Barbie! It was great fun!

The Outfit:

I got my vintage dress at Magpie. The dress has a fun Hawaiian pastel 60’s print. Since I was going to be riding in a vintage 1960’s Cadillac I wanted to look MOD and fun. I was inspired by Mary Quant “the queen of the miniskirt” and added white Gucci booties, pink tights and a vintage straw bag.

The Hat:

I blocked the hat out of straw parasisal ( a finely woven straw with sheen, has elasticity, high quality) and cut over 80 goose feathers to create a fun ”fire cracker” feather flower.
