Beginner and advanced classes
in hat making and headwear accessories
Estelle Ramousse was the recipient of an award to study for one year in the fashion and hat industry in 1989 by the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. She then began to do Specialized and Haut Couture items for the fashion industry while also expanding into television advertising, feature film and eventually the coveted Opera National de Paris.
An equestrian theatre company called Zingaro contacted to Estelle in 1999 to create all the elaborate head gear for their tour. Upon completion of the contract, she was asked to join the company and this began a three year adventure on tour with Zingaro. Come 2004, she opened a private workshop within Paris to continue her work which eventually led to her being asked to serve as a professor in 2009. Fully enjoying the experience of interacting with the next generation of progressive artists, she launched her own training program based from her Parisienne workshop. Estelle organizers her teaching into the production of models with hands-on instruction and has subsequently trained people from the US, China, Japan, Australia and all of Europe.
She has an unconditional love and appreciation for the ‘Country & Western’ aesthetic and is drawn to the anything that expresses the flavour of ‘Big Sky Country’.
