Millinery Instructor -  Tina Giuntini - Bea & Evie Millinery

Ballard Millinery Studio - Seattle, WA

 

For twenty-five years Bea & Evie has been designing period-inspired hats with a contemporary edge. Our passion for the elegance of yesteryear is evident in the designs we create, combining colors, materials and textures into wearable works of art. All of our hats are hand-made to exacting standards from the highest quality materials. Each hat is hand-blocked and trimmed with an astounding array of vintage ribbons and flowers.

Our captivating range of one of a kind, and unusual hats is now available online (BeaEvie.etsy.com) and at The Ballard Millinery Studio, Seattle. We also teach millinery classes; a great way to explore your inner flapper.

Bea & Evie is the creation of milliner Tina Giuntini. Known for her eclectic style, Tina was inspired by the flapper and Hollywood stars of the 1930’s. Based in London since 1996, Tina’s work has been further influenced by the mix of cultures and fast pace of London. The result is an approach that is casual, yet romantic. Instagram - Bea & Evie
