The Rad Hatter The Millinery Guild Opens on Beverly
“dull” is not one of them.
Her new Beverly Boulevard boutique, The Millinery Guild,
specializes in eccentric, over-the-top headwear (an all-too-
raresight outside British aristocracy and Munchkinland).
Inside the all-white jewel box space, you’ll find handcrafted
toppers that range from whimsical (felt fedoras with bird
appliques) to WTF? (a mousetrap headband with a wedge of
rhinestoned cheese) by established labels such as
Cristina de Prada, Su WeHa, and Carpe Diem.
Then there’s Murphy’s own line, Montez, with
avant-garde creations like a mouth-shaped straw beret dangling a cigarette. She often uses wooden
hat blocks from the 1930s and 1940s, so even custom orders have a vintage twist.
Want to flex your own millinery muscle? Murphy plans to teach beginners’ workshops at
We’re brimming with excitement.
The Millinery Guild, 7767 Beverly Boulevard, between North Ogden Drive and
North Genesee Avenue, Fairfax District (213-985-4784 or themillineryguild.com), $65 and up.
