Oliver Manhattan - Costumes & Design

I live and work in the Bywater of New Orleans, creating everything from infamous, one-of-a-kind hats and spectacular costumes to interiors and set design. I mix new and up-cycled fabrics & objects, fashioning items that have individual character and impeccable craftsmanship. My pieces are easy to wear and combine function with interesting fabrics and strong color blends for a luxurious and unique fashion experience. 

Currently all of my pieces are made to order, but if you are in New Orleans, please stop by The Parlor Gallery & Showroom (open seasonally) at 3913 St. Claude, NOLA 70117. (see the locations tab for contact info)

Also, I will be showing at the Costume Bazaar at the New Orleans Healing Center on Feb 8th alongside some of New Orleans' most exciting costumers!
