There was a time when a woman wouldn’t be caught dead without a fashionable hat on her head. Although times have changed and fashion no longer dictates the sporting of hats, the art of millinery has carried on.
When I say art, I mean it in the highest sense. And no one practices the art better than Anya Caliendo. Anya Caliendo’s fanciful creations are all handmade and the labor that goes into each design is a testament to her passion for the craft.
Born and raised in Russia, this talented designer has studied and worked in London and also in New York, where she currently lives and creates her collections. Anya Caliendo presented her latest collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, where she spoke to us about the collection and her enduring love for millinery.
