I really love that so many designs feature feathers. I have several brides this summer that have feathers on their dresses or are incorporating feathers into their bouquets or other design pieces. They are such an unexpected yet elegant touch with great texture.
Leah Chalfen is a millinery teacher at NYC's Parson's School of Design and has an impressive client list (Nicole Kidman, Rosario Dawson, Queen Latifah, Erykah Badu). Despite this, she works hard to maintain a small-scale boutique experience for each client, and does custom work as well.
And if you're not planning a wedding? Her site is full of fun fashion photos that make for great browsing!
The right accessory can really complete an ensemble (OK, you do need a gorgeous bouquet too!), and I think these exquisitely crafted pieces are just the thing to do it!
