Who was Archie Eason

Archie Eason started out as a stock boy at a department store in Jacksonville Florida in 1984. Between shifts, he learned the millinery trade. His skill landed him an official  job in the millinery department and, in a few years designed for the store under his own label. After 14 years he moved to New York and worked with numerous fashion designers, developing an impressive clientele of Hollywood stars. Eason was known for producing all types of hats to fit every type of face. His most famous creation was Faye Dunaway’s beret in 1968’s Bonnie and Clyde.  A green sequin is an Eason signature and rides on the outside of the crown on each of his hats. Read more on our blog.
