Premier Advanced Millinery Program has been developed by Anya Caliendo based on her extensive knowledge in hat design and hat construction. Packed with combination of traditional millinery techniques as well as unique techniques developed by Anya in her Atelier, Premier Advanced Certificate Millinery Program has proved once and again to be equally valuable to those students who are at the beginner level in Millinery as well as those who have experience working in the field of Fashion and Millinery.

So far program has welcomed students from all over the globe - France, Russia Japan, Australia, Ireland, Canada, Peru, Spain and from all over the USA. Each student enrolled in Advanced Millinery Course will be taught advanced skills in millinery techniques to the golden standard of Couture.

Course includes: blocking techniques for various types of materials including and not limited to felt, straw and buckram as well as unique techniques in construction of hat base attachments, high fashion design in head wear, manipulation of both unconventional and traditional materials, free shape designs and many other great techniques.

The Course also includes field day in NYC when the entire group visits the best suppliers in the industry and taught on site to properly plan and budget for production of the millinery collection. Premier Program developed by Anya allows students to transit into production immediately after the end of the Course. Each graduate is awarded an official Certificate of Completion upon completing the Course and provided with the list of contact information of the key suppliers to the Millinery Industry. We are extremely proud of the fact that 90% of our graduates went on creating their own successful Millineries all over the globe.
