One Block Many Milliners Photos

The Office of Alumni and Faculty Relations at FIT and the Milliners Guild were pleased to hold a reception showcasing the exceptional work by twenty-five milliners who were challenged to create two hats using the same block. The Millinery Guild is comprised of many FIT alumni who particpated in this challenge, including Evetta Petty (’79), Sally Caswell (Millinery ’08), Kimberly A.R. D’Auria (FMM ’01), Kathy Anderson (’80), Linda Ashton (Millinery  ’97), Jacqueline Lamont (Millinery ’87), and FIT Faculty Member Janet Linville. 

With the help of alumna Linda Ashton, President of the Milliners Guild, and all the milliners who particpated in the challenge, the event a great success! We thank all those who attended to support the incredible creativity of FIT alumni and friends.

    Your Millinary guild should get in touch with the Costume Designer’s Guild in LA and showcase their work. I am a member and custom hats are something we would always be interested in knowing more about, (and the people who do them).
