Jacqueline has over 20 years working in the fashion Industry. Designing everything from plus sized woman’s clothing to dolls. She studied architecture and Interior Design at Pratt Institute and graduated in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. Working in the garment industry is where she gained firsthand knowledge of how fabric was used to put designer collections together. It was this love of design, fabric and texture that inspired Ms. Lamont to open her own design company, finding her niche in Millinery.
Jacqueline studied Millinery under Janine Galiamard an old school French Milliner who made hats for Balenciaga.
Jacqueline’s hats have been on television and Broadway. Elle, Essence, Vogue, NY Times, W plus publications in Asia, the Caribbean and Europe have all featured her work.
Her hats were highlighted at The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s retrospective “Ahead of Fashion: hats of the 20th Century”, where a selection of her custom hats were sold. She was featured in the book “A Century of hats”. Her hats have been on exhibit in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
She has done private label collections for Burberry and J. Crew. In addition, Jacqueline has created hats for numerous artists and music videos.
