The Millinery Association of Australia (MAA) was started over 25 years ago as a not for profit organisation encompassing a diverse range of millinery, from traditional hats to costume. The MAA aims to raise the profile of millinery in Australia and ensure professionalism and quality of workmanship are key values amongst its members.
Membership criteria is extensive. Only certified Professional Milliners who meet experience and skills of the highest standards are accepted into the association and members must abide by a professional code of conduct.
So it is with great excitement that my application to upgrade my membership status from Student to Fellow was accepted!
Always look for the MAA logo when purchasing headwear to ensure you buying quality.
