ellen christine chelsea says "Hello, soho"

Here's our last window, just in time for the new snow. A celebration, a new beginning, with a Snow Queen to inspire and lead us into 2011. Ellen Christine Millinery is now in Soho. We've been there for 25 years, but now we're open to the public, not just to the designers, editors and stylists.
Whew, what a move. Days of boxes, and days of construction, and at some point, we'll be pretty enough for receiving guests again.
At the studio/loft/showroom in West soho, we are already booked through January for brides. Nothing deters the brides, boy. Nothing. And we thank them for their determination and undaunted spirit in search for the perfect headpiece and veil.
May we serve you all, with more fun, less agravation, many good vibes, and tea. Because here, we have a kitchen!
Appointments can be made via internet, or phone. We welcome all .

Thank you for your support, and may it be a year of blessings for us all!

Ellen Christine Millinery Moves Ahead

New for the New Year:

With all of our collaborative efforts with designers, editors, and special projects with retail establishments , Ellen Christine finds it hard to be in two places at once. As a result of much deliberation, the retail shop in Chelsea will no longer be the place to come and be seen in our hats. Now, all of you who have wanted to see where the magic takes place, can come to the studio! As of December 31st, 2010.

A behind the scenes live experience better than backstage will now be available for our customers who have yet to see how it happens. Editors, stylists, and designers know the studio environment, but we will now be doing custom bridal, and fittings in the West Soho Ellen Christine Studio.

By merely dialing the same phone number and making an appointment, you can come up and see us in the midst of prepping the next collection. As a showroom, we will be available full-time for wholesale buyers, and to our retail customer , but now, the experience will be one-on-one.

We hope you are as excited as we are for the move, and the 2011 Spring Collection. We are nationally available at Henri Bendel, and hope to see you at one of our many appearances at the New York flagship store, on Fifth Avenue.

Call us for consultations, whether they be runway or anyway, and we’ll be happy to work with you as we have done for the last 3 decades. The 16 years at the Chelsea shop helped us bring hats to the forefront of fashion, and we hope to provide you with continued avantgarde millinery design.

Launching our showroom in Tokyo, thanks to the representation of Yagi Tsusho, will help us hat more heads. Henri Bendel awaits the Spring Collection, and through their 12 stores nationwide, cocktail hats and fascinators will rule.

Thank you for being a fan, and we hope to see you soon in Soho.
