The Millinery Guild of Southern California (http://millineryguildsocal.com) was founded in January of 2010 by S. "Montez" Murphy, who has designed hats for 20 years. The mission of the guild is to foster interest in hats, millinery and hat wearing. This is achieved through lectures, instructional workshops and a variety of classes in all aspects of traditional and contemporary millinery. The guild also sponsors charity events, sales and demonstrations that enable our members to enhance their skills and share their expertise through public sales and exhibits.
The Millinery Guild is proud to have Subaru as the presenting sponsor for this season’s show. Subaru has a commitment to fostering strong relationships with local communities by recognizing non-profit organizations working to better their communities. The guild is honored to have Subaru as a partner as we look forward to featuring the 2011 Legacy during the show. The Legacy holds the highest crash test rating from the NHTSA (five out of five stars).
