Geaux Chapeaux is featured in the Solidarity in Style exhibit.

Rosa Parks was my immediate choice for the suffragist event because of her strong will, determination and courage for civil rights and equality. This hat is adorned with a small garden of pansies that symbolize remembrance, thought, and love and admiration for one person to another, which seemed appropriate. Creating this vintage styled hat was a bridge for me to connect my segregation experiences as a young girl, raised in south east Louisiana in the 1960s… who refused to sit at the back of the bus, too!

The Milliners Guild is proud to announce that we are, again, part of another show of our hats at the Mezzanine Gallery @themetstore, of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.
Our installation was created in the themes of two exhibitions at the @metmuse
um, “Instruments of Rock and Roll” and “Camp: Notes on Fashion”.
My inspiration came from “Carmen Miranda”, known for her colorful headpieces adorned with fruits and flowers. Very Campy!
The outstanding couture creations by the Milliners Guild will be on display and available for purchase for the next few months. @geauxchapeauxmillinery #metmuseumnyc#nymetropolitanmuseumofart #junegumbel#junegumbelhats #millineryguildnyc #millineryguild#custommadehats #carmenmiranda #carmenmirandahat#carmenmirandaheaddress handmadehats #kmaakatonahmuseumofart @ The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

For the last and final week of the embellishment blog series, we will discuss millinery feathers.  Feathers are extremely popular, and they come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.

While we may not reach all of the types of feathers, we will mention a few.  There are arrowheads at the end of the quill (shown above).  A feather mounting made of the goose's biot and hackle feathers is quite nice too.  It looks like a small poof of feathers.  One of our favorites is the long coque feather.  This is a floaty feather that can be used to make different designs.

Just like the flowers, feathers are dyed to create a large variety of color.  They can range from ivory, turquoise, hot pink, mint, coral and many more colors.

Again, the purpose of the embellishment is to have fun!  Love your choices and let them reflect your style and personality.

This fascinator is absolutely gorgeous and designed with the Bride in mind.  It has a sinamay base, with a satin cover.  A beautiful lace piece is draped over it and onto the crinoline.  The metallic gold thread really helps this fascinator stand out from others.  Small pearls are also sewn in.  If you're looking to be traditional, but yet want something special, this is for you.  Wear the veil for the ceremony, and put this on for your reception.
