Millinery Instructor - Tina Giuntini - Bea & Evie Millinery

 

For thirty years Bea & Evie has been designing period-inspired hats with a contemporary edge, displaying a passion for the elegance of yesteryear that is evident in the designs Tina creates by combining colors, materials and textures into wearable works of art. Known for her eclectic style, Tina is inspired by the flapper and Hollywood stars of the 1930’s, with further influence from the mix of cultures and fast pace of London (where she resided for 30 years), resulting in an approach that is casual, yet romantic.
