by Milica in the Hat Millinery
area milliner Milica Schiavio creates her unique collection of hats as a form
of self-expression. She has described her designs as “eye-catching conversation
pieces intended to captivate and stand out in the crowd.” Often using found
objects like silk flowers, feathers, plastic fruit -- even egg shells, maps,
and drink ware -- Schiavio has a very bold yet playful approach towards
millinery. She has transformed the utilitarian hat into a sculptural object.
fanciful and whimsical narratives are a decorative delight. Schiavio hopes to
“infuse anyone who wears her hats with light, joy, and vivacity.” And it’s
especially important to Schiavio that her hats inspire fun and enliven the
people who wear them.
