Jill Courtemanche Millinery
Jill Courtemanche Millinery features handmade and custom men’s and women’s hats as well as bridal headpieces and a modern collection of accessories for men.
The shop doubles as Courtemanche’s studio where shoppers can watch her work and can handpick materials and trims for their own custom hats. All JCM designs are handmade using vintage materials, trims and embellishments combined with modern fabrics. Courtemanche combines traditional techniques and craftsmanship with a young, feminine, and contemporary approach to her hats.
From fascinators to fedoras, several celebrities — including Yoko Ono, Donatella Versace, Princess Mary of Denmark and football legend José Fouré — have worn JCM hats. She also makes a line of bow ties and pocket squares for men.
Jill Courtemanche graduated from New York City's prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in the mid-90's and after a decade of working alongside master artisans in New York and Europe, opened her namesake atelier in 2006. Jill also teaches hatmaking classes in her studio, so guests can make their own fascinator, cocktail, or mini top hat. Private group lessons and one-on-one fittings are also available.
