Exclusive Preview and Moët & Chandon Champagne Reception on Valentine’s Day

Recent buzz around Ellen Christine’s hand-crafted headpieces has landed her on the cover of Italian Vogue (January 2011) and she is bringing her latest Met-Inspired collection for an exclusive preview and champagne reception to the heart of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall 2011 – the Met Opera Shop in Lincoln Center – on St. Valentine’s Day, Monday, February 14 from 4 to 6 p.m.

Visitors will sip Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial Champagne and shop these brilliant collections of cocktail hats veiled in silk, custom-dyed feathers, organza streamers, felt and Swarovski crystals, specifically inspired by the Met’s productions of Carmen and Armida. The Carmen collection stems from Ellen Christine's Spanish heritage, and from the drama that happens onstage because of "La fleur que tu m'avais jetee."
