Allison Parson Design Marie Claire Magazine

Marie Claire requested a few turbans from Allison Parson Design for an editorial in one of their magazines.  Check out the Video    
The turbans didn't make the magazine but Allison's  'Bloom'  hat in white landed on the head of the Editor-in-Chief instead.  Fabulous! 

about allison
Allison Parson is inspired by beautiful fabrics and trims, and the mid-century modern decorative arts that she surrounds herself within her Los Angeles home and studio. She has studied art history and interior design, and her love of sewing, art background and design school all came together when she decided to pursue her millinery career.
A self-taught seamstress, Allison has sewn since childhood. Her first hat design was a whim, as she loved to take on new sewing challenges. She thought “I’ve made nearly everything else, why not make a hat?” With inspiration from past designers like Bes-Ben and Lilly Dache', some scraps from her fabric stash and pieces of trim that caught her eye, she began to experiment with design and placement. Through trial and error, she developed her original pattern and concept for her designs. Each flower, ribbon, or thread embellishment is sewn by hand with a great attention to detail.
