Gallia e Peter
In business since 1904, is the oldest milliner's shop in Milan. Located in the Brera district, its age-old tradition has been handed down from mother to daughter: Laura Marelli, who runs it today, represents the fourth generation of women engaged in creating hats for women. The milliner works with each customer to design the creation of her dreams including bespoke veils, short veils, hats, hair bands and fascinators for brides and ceremonial attire. Each and every piece of headgear is handcrafted, in full respect of a form of craftsmanship that is almost an art. Among others, the maison's longstanding customers include couturiers of the caliber of Armani, Versace, Moschino and Valentino. www.galliaepeter.it
