During the Mannequins Annual Hat Luncheon on May 16th, world-renowned hat designer (and brand new Mannequins Auxiliary member) Louise Green displayed some of her one-of-a-kind handmade, gorgeous hats. Many of Louise’s creations have crowned stylish women, music and movie stars, and Royal Wedding guests. Most recently Louise’s hats adorned Mannequins members Melly Lindsay and Galina Sobolev when they were featured as her hat models during a KTLA 5 segment before the Royal Wedding.
Mannequins Auxiliary was founded in 1943 by a group of women who had two major things in common: experience and resources in the world of fashion, and a strong desire to give back to their community. Today, Mannequins Auxiliary raises funds for the League services by producing/co-producing fashion shows for special events. These highly successful fashion shows highlight local and independently-owned designers as well nationally-marketed couture lines. If you are interested in becoming a member of Mannequins, or attending one of their events, please contact Kai Tramiel, Director of Membership and Community Outreach, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 323-545-4847.
