About

A love affair with Millinery, began in a Selfridge Boutique

Hi! I'm Blair, the designer, creative director and pretty much all things behind Blair Nadeau Bridal Adornments!

I always love knowing the story behind a brand, so I thought I'd share ours!

Back in 2008, I was working a pretty great job in the fashion industry and fairly fresh out of school (I went to Ryerson University for Fashion Design). I had the fortune of travelling around Europe with this particular position and one fateful day on my first trip to London England, we wondered into Selfridges on Oxford street. (This was before the royal wedding and before the word "fascinator" was a household word in North America). As we wandered through their FABULOUS shoe department and eating licorice pinwheels from the candy department (yum), I stumbled into this little boutique that was filled to the brim (ha..punny) of the most whimsical and fascinating (punny again...) headpieces and hats. I stopped dead in my tracks and thought...."this is what i'm going to do!". I had always wanted to be my own independent designer, but wasn't sure which path I wanted to walk down and there, in Selfridges, eating licorice, I discovered my path.

For a year, I taught myself everything I needed to know about feathers, sinamay, veiling, traditional millinery techniques and on April 21st 2009, our little millinery was born. Originally I started with fashion headpieces, as it was a time when feather headbands and fascinators were all the rage (thanks Will and Kate)...this continued for a few years until a friend was getting married and requested a feather headpiece and a birdcage veil. I made my first...then my second....and well, Blair Nadeau Bridal was born! Fast forward to 9 years later and our little millinery has blossomed into a beautiful bridal adornment business.

I absolutely adore what I do. Bridal makes me unbelievably happy. There is so much joy and happiness around this time in a person's life and I feel truly honored to be a part of it. It's a true honor when a bride asks me to be a part of one of the most special and important days of her life.
and....a little bit about me, the girl behind the brand.

My middle name is Victoria. I have the most adorable dog in the world...her name is Chanel and she's a little 12lb black Italian Greyhound. She's my heart, my light and my everything. I have an obsession with Cacti (i have about 32 live ones) and Dinosaurs (I wish I had a live one). My favourite colour is mustard and I adore mid century modern design mixed with southwest Arizona vibes. I'm a car girl, I was once VP of an all girls car tuning club, that's how I met my fiance. I love bacon, pancakes, and maple...i'm truly Canadian, that being said, I adore France and Mexico, they are my two favourite countries in the world and I will get married in one of them...I just can't decide yet. Speaking of which, I have an awesome Fiance, his name is Kyle and he's a pretty integral part of the business. He packs up most of the orders (he's so much better at wrapping then I am) and does the final quality control check to make sure everything is perfect before it ships out. So...that's me...in a nutshell...

Blair Nadeau Millinery can be seen currently on multiple episodes of the CW Network's hit show Reign & on Season 2 of Riverdale

We were also a top 2 finalist for the Canadian Industry Wedding Awards - Accessory designer of the year - 2014
