Hat and Fashion Accessory Designer
Website: http://www.jasminzorlu.com

I was born in Germany and raised in the wonderlands of Iceland and Japan, where I developed a fascination for all things modern and minimal. My artist mother took me to art museums and galleries all over the world, which led me to pursue my undergraduate degree in Art History. However, in my junior year of college in Michigan, I took a theatrical millinery course and became hooked by the sculptural possibilities of the powerful accessory of the HAT. I've been designing and making headwear for 25 years, with a brief foray as a corporate footwear designer. I recently taught millinery to fashion students at Parsons School of Design as an adjunct Professor for 3 1/2 years. I'm so excited for the possibilities to make hats and other accessories with the 3d printer, laser cutter, and Juki industrial sewing machine at MAKE.
