Mad As A Hatter: Flower Mound’s Eco-Friendly Millinerium

Pretty in pink.

Kristin and I made a visit to the suburbs today to check out the at-home studio of Millinerium‘s hat maker, Ginger Strand. What we saw were handmade hats from refurbished fabrics, including everyday pieces and costume wear. Each hat was lovely. Unlike other milliners (hat makers), Ginger really does construct each headpiece from scratch, using wood blocks to shape and her bare hands to create fabulousness. We saw it with our own eyes. Hats can include anything from a vintage fabric to vintage brooches from Ginger’s grandmother. Prices run from $20 (for fabric caps) to $500 (for more couture items). Please enjoy pictures of the toppers after the the jump and grab yourself a ticket to the next ladies’ derby party.

  1. gorgeous is correct consuelo.. you need to come to Arboretum’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party with those beauties…

  2. Ginger makes AMAZING millinery creations. The first hat you show (pink) was donned by the fabulous Lisa Petty at last week’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. But the hat Ginger wore stole the show. She looked like a sunflower! LOVE!

  3. Wow.
    I used to spend a lot of time in London in the Harrod’s hat department and she is really talented.

    Does she have a website?

  4. Unrelated – but do you know of any movie theaters in Dallas that are having a royal wedding watching party?

  5. Thank you! I saw those, but was looking for a theater like some cities are doing. Thanks for your reply though!
