Even though it's cold and wintery out there today, pretty soon it will be Spring and Summer, which means wedding season is almost here. All you brides, bridesmaids and fashionable guests will be looking for something special to make a statement. That's when you should turn to one of the most talented milliners in Canada: Blair Nadeau.
I met Blair a couple of years ago at the Spring 2010 Clothing Show in Toronto. You can see a picture of her here, she's on the left. At that time, I wasn't familiar with her work, but was so drawn to her beautiful creations, that we spoke briefly, I took some pictures, we exchanged cards and I we went about our business. Months later, when Chris and I got married I thought of Blair's beautiful work again and picked up this green piece for our city hall service.
So Blair's work will forever be a part of my life in a very visible and sentimental way. But I'll tell you what sets her apart, is the kindness and beauty of her spirit. When Blair found out that my dad was sick in the hospital last year, she dedicated a post on her website to me and my dad wishing us both well. She's an exceptionally talented and original designer, and she's the kind of Canadian artist you want to support.
Here are some of the 2012 Bridal Millinery and Fascinator Collection from Blair Nadeau.
