THE MODIST

THE WORLD OF YOUR CARIBBEAN MILLINER

Artisans of father in son and strong of a training with a milliner of haute couture

Discovering the trade

Magalie Bermuda is the result of an artisanal environment of goldsmithery; His grandfather was a hand-engraver on precious metals and his uncles and cousins were jewellers. Petite, she liked to walk around the studio, to watch these melt and pull the golden threads and make watermarks.
His grandfather carved the first names on medals, plaquait these and other jewels in the wax in order to register them with very special tools. This workshop was located on Lamartine Street next to the hairdresser "Jojo". As a mother seamstress, she loved watching her mom work, but didn't really appreciate the demands of the job because Magalie didn't like to undress what was poorly executed. She was impatient!
Back in Martinique, after leaving France on a whim, she discovers by flipping through a magazine, an article describing the trade of "milliner", and the training centre that teaches it: "Greta". It thus starts to form in 1991 and takes advantage of it to forge an experience with the milliner of Haute Couture "Jean Barthet".

Training in trade shows

In 2003, she followed another formation of milliner de spectacle, then of Dinandery. As a result, she will participate in the various Caribbean salons and be invited to the beauty Week.
During her visit to the Regional Council of Martinique, she met Mr. Bertrand Delanoë, mayor of Paris of the time, then decided to create his workshop in 2007 on his island; Martinique.

A trainer at the forefront

In March 2008, she was invited to the salon "Prevew Fashion exposed" by Ubifrance on the French marquee in Sydney, Australia.
Magalie multiplies the exhibits, forms a few friends who will plead her case with the director of the copes, which allows him to teach the trade to about fifteen students, an operation to be renewed the following year.
Throughout the year, Magalie presents headdresses and hats that are born from her imagination, unique pieces, according to her desires and moods. Today, it spends its sales more particularly internationally.
