Eileen L. Bleyer
1941 - 2022
Art and fashion design have been a passion of Eileen’s for as long as she can remember. She was inspired by her Grandmother and her Aunts who always stepped out in the most fashionable dresses, stunning hats and always wore gloves. Eileen began designing clothes for her dolls at 6 yrs of age and was awarded first place in a state-wide evening gown design contest at the age of 16. She studied art and design in her younger years, designing and making her own stylish clothes over the years. Her passion for designing and her love of elegant hats has led her to create several lines of one-of-a-kind couture hats and fascinators.
Ivan Bitton Style House chose an Eileen L Bleyer original couture fascinator for the cover of their Marie Westwood Spring 2019 Fashion Magazine. The Fascinator is worn by model and author Hana Noka and appeared at the 31st International Couture Fashion show at the Embassy of France for DC Fashion week in September 2019.
