BaublesAndWhatnots' Profile

About

I am a Chicago-based milliner and accessory designer who revives the romance of fashion staples that were once a mandate for women. All of my work is handmade, hand-blocked, hand-sewn and each piece is one-of-a-kind. I make each hat by letting the fabric dictate what it wants to be, sculpting and draping each one by hand on the block, then stitching details into place. I also incorporate vintage findings such as silk flowers, Victorian buttons and WWII era milliners ribbons into my work to keep a true sense of the era when hats were king.

B&W is constantly adding new items, so check back often!
