Mystery at Bergdorf's

Who made those fabulous hats in the Bergdorf Goodman Fall 2008 catalogue?  Ellen Christine Millinery, of course.  No, we haven't yet started to wholesale, but since the stylists who call the shots for these layouts love our hats, they pull from our stock for dressing up the looks.  In this case,  the lovely Marina Burini, a fan from way back, commissioned the pieces for the story.  this is  a case of collaboration:  meetings occur  in advance, with a spread of ideas, and a feel for the story.  We make what the stylist wants, or what they dreamt of, and sometimes it works.  In Marina's hands, it always works. 
 It helps if there's a synchronicity as well. the process is always a pleasure when it works, and then some....look at these gorgeous shots in the Bergdorf catalogue of our draped suede turban, and the magnificent quilted leather Samurai Helmet.  Photography is such a marvelous art, and when the styling is excellent, nothing can go wrong.
Both pieces are available exclusively at Ellen Christine Millinery, and can be ordered in any color that works with your Fall wardrobe.
Oh, and Bergdorf's, we'd working on a collection just for you!
