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.
