Créations élégantes

Christiane Schmitt modiste miliner Versailles
Tomorrow is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo blogging community and the theme is 'stylish', so VDP thought an appetiser would be in order. Christiane Schmitt is miliner. Actually, some of her hats appeared on this blog in 2011 when they were on show at the town hall, it was here. Despite having seen her shop in the antiques district dozens of times, VDP had yet to enter. The hats and wedding dresses are all custom handmade in Versailles by Christiane and her daughter and VDP thinks they are rather stylish! To visit Christiane Schmitt's website, click here and to visit her daughter's page, click here!

Demain, c'est le 1er juin et donc jour de thème dans la communauté des blogueurs City Daily Photo et le thème sera "stylé, élégant" VDP s'est dit qu'un dimanche, on pouvait commencer par un apéro ! Christiane Schmitt est modiste. Ses chapeaux divins ont déjà fait une apparition sur ce blog, c'était ici en 2011, à l'occasion du salon des métiers d'art. Bien qu'étant passée des dizaines de fois devant sa boutique dans le quartier des antiquaires, VDP n'était jamais encore entrée. Les chapeaux et les robes de mariées, sont tous faits main à Versailles. Pour se rendre sur le site web de Christiane Schmitt, c'est par ici et pour celui de sa fille, c'est ici qui ça se passe !

Very smart and stylish, in England the sort of thing that ladies wear to the Ascot races...

Sounds like a great mother-daughter cooperative.

Will you be wearing on in your photo? Nice dress.

Gorgeous creations. I wish I could wear hats but, I look terrible in them.

Lowell said...

That is interesting...especially if you have a female head, but who wears these things anymore? I can't recall when I last saw a woman wearing a hat, except for those in the Red Hat Society!

@ Lowell: thankfully, some people still do for some occasions, which includes me.

Elegant and quite elaborate...

These images remind me of the Lisbon hat shops that no longer exist... :-(

RedPat said...

There are 2 shops similar to this near me and business seems to be quite good for them. Women are wearing hats to weddings a lot now and Orthodox Jewish women buy a lot of hats for all kinds of occasions.

Fashion always brings some style for some. I wouldn't wear it though. Would you?

William Kendall said...

When I see hats like this I wish I were tall, willowy and had a long, beautiful neck. ;))

Jolis modèles et excellente introduction au thème du mois.
J’ai une grande admiration pour les modistes et leur art de trouver la forme, la teinte et plus pour parer une tête… pour les modistes il n’y a que des « tètes a chapeau. »
