ELLE.com + My Atelier = Flight Of Fancy. Hats Off To Kate And Will !!!:-)

 The Royal Wedding is just few very short days away. Are you excited about it? I am beyond excited and can not wait to see everything that is kept under wraps so carefully including, of course, hats. On April 22nd  Elle.com went live with the editorial "Hats Off To Will And Kate!" (click to see entire editorial) with the selection of 20 fabulous hats from the best couture Milliners and designers.
 I can not describe to you how it feels to see my hats next to greatest names in business: Alexander McQueen, Philip Treacy, Alexis Bittar and, of course, my beloved Stephen Jones. :-) It gives me butterflyes, just like the ones you see on the screen shot with Alexaner Mcqueen's hat. :-)
 The editors came up with funny, interesting comments which you can read on www.Elle.com next to each hat. I believe that I have introduced you to all of my hats in this editorial but, somehow, to me, my hats look much more different when they become a part of the story.
 From what I can see, my "Louboutin Lover" hat became a center of attention as it was reblogged and "liked" over 40 times. Well, I love this hat too! :-)
 Thank you to the editors of Elle.com for including 5 of my hats in this editorial. I am wishing all of you wonerful week. Mine is going to be filled with more hats as the work on my new Collection is in progress and, of course, expectation of a Royal Wedding. :-)

Hi Anya
Fantastic that you're featured (not unexpected of course!)
Also looking forward to Friday and hoping it doesn't rain.

carla fox said...

What a fabulous validation of your work! Kudos to you:)
Also, I hope some of your hats will be attending the royal wedding. I heard on the Today show this morning that they are asking the public to dress up (including wearing hats) for the day on Friday. Here's to bringing back the hat for everyone!

I just tried to post a comment, but I don't think it worked so here I go again! :) I am so so excited for you being honoured in this beautiful editorial!! Of course I am not surprised and I know that you deserve to be acknowledged among the greatest couture & designers! With your talent & passion, combined with your incredible dedication and drive... you can only succeed, again and again. That is why you are my inspiration! :) I plan to immediately visit this beautiful editorial after this and spend time reading it all! I spot the stunning Russian Traditional Kokoshnik that I love so dearly... it is so beautiful as are they all!!

I must tell you Anya, that your recent comments left me smiling all day long especially your comment on my new dress design. It meant the world to me! :) Much luck with your new collection, I'm so excited to hear/see more about it! I too am looking so forward to seeing the beautiful hats & clothing at the royal wedding!

Congratulations dear Anya for not just having one, but five of your glorious works of art featured on Elle! You so deserve it and all the pieces are stunning as you already know. I can't say that I'm too fussed about the Royal Wedding (I'm actually escaping London for that weekend), though I am curious about the dress and outfit. I'm sure most hats will pale in comparison to yours though!

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

How ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, DARLING!! SO very exciting ... but we fans know that you deserve to be there! So very talented! xoxo

Draffin Bears said...

Dear Anya,

I am sitting watching the Royal wedding dear friend and am amazed at all the wonderful hats and outfits all the ladies are wearing. I thought of you when I saw the hats.
Hope that you get to see the wedding.

Happy weekend

Angie Muresan said...
