Meet Milliner Jasmin Zorlu, Saturday December 5th, 2-5pm

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Heavily inspired by the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, Jasmin Zorlu Millinery employs innovative materials such as fishskin (tanned fish leather), upcycled leather, abalone shells, and fruit bags to create futuristic headwear which transcend traditional notions of design and time. Mostly eschewing employment of trims like flowers, ribbons, and feathers, her hats reveal their form simply and sculpturally.  Jasmin Zorlu Millinery aims to create exciting headwear which will achieve heirloom status and still look fresh 100 years from now.
