“The golden age of the #hat has passed. Or has it? Once a month, a group calling itself the Milliners Guild meets in New York with a singular purpose: to restore the well-made hat to its rightful place on top of the #fashion world. Made up of artisans, designers and small-business owners, the guild emerged 10 years ago to help professional hat makers deal with the dwindling number of suppliers in the once-thriving hat district in Manhattan’s West 30s. @fredrconrad photographed Monika Stebbins, the group’s president, in her blue #fascinator. The Milliners Guild has been working hard to increase the profile of fine #millinery, she said. Although the well-made hat may no longer be on top of the fashion world, in Monika’s opinion, we are living in “an exciting time.” #portrait” By nytimes on Instagram.
