Surely royal weddings had a great role in making people change their viewpoint about headwear and undertsand that hats and fascinators can easily build up a unique style for certain occasions. However, it was due to Maison Michel that people started wearing these charming accessories not only during royal weddings. Once you take a look at the stunning creations by this famous designer, you’ll definitely start loving headwear and will certainly have a great wish to obtain one of those unique designs.
Everything started yet in 1936, when milliner Auguste Michel set up an exclusive shop on rue Sainte Anne in Paris and began designing hats for the high class ladies in town. About 70 years have passed and the famous atelier makes all the hats for Chanel and also releases its own ready-to-wear collections. It’s an entire haute couture to design headwear, a real art, which is best presented by Maison Michel!
