Latinas in Fashion: Mexican Milliner Gladys Tamez of Gladys Tamez Millinery
As a fan of hats, I must tell you guys about this amazing Milliner Gladys Tamez of Gladys Tamez Millinery. Mexican born and LA based Gladys Tamez, shot to fame after Lady Gaga wore one of her hats on the cover of her album Joanne. That pink hat is legendary at this point.
Long before that, Tamez had been designing hats for celebrities such as: Johnny Depp, JLo, Julia Roberts, Sia, Madonna, Queen Latifah, Lebron James among others. Her hats have been featured in numerous magazines including Vogue. Gladys is a rock star, well she is not really a rock star, but she looks like one. Her personal style is another reason why I love her.
Tamez, founded her company in 2012 and every hat is handmade in Los Angeles using traditional hat making techniques and only the finest of materials like felt and velour. If you are in LA, you must stop by her downtown showroom or make an appointment to meet the designer and get a Bespoke hat. You can also shop online on her website at www.gladystamez.com.

Great post. I love hats, but I wasn’t familiar with her before reading. The Joanne hat is iconic. Owning one will definitely be on my wishlist.
