Nolcha Fashion Week: New York, now in its seventh year, is proud to announce that Monstruosité will be joining the schedule in September 2014 for the Spring/Summer 2015 collections.

Monstruosité (formerly House of Donshey), is a high fashion millinery brand established in 2010 by designer and creative director 23-year-old Dolly Donshey after studying the art of hat making under renowned milliner Jan Wutkowski, alumni of the Melbourne School of Millinery in Australia. Since inception, the brand has been featured in publications and media around the world and worn by celebrities such as Sasha Pieterse and Carmen Electra.

Designer Dolly Donshey comments; “I am moved by the Baroque and Renaissance time periods. I like to interpret pieces of art, music, and theater and bring the essence to life through my collections. We are so excited to be a part of Nolcha Fashion Week because this event truly embodies the energy and creativity of independent designers and gives us a platform to share our vision to the world.”

The signature style of Monstruosité brings together the traditional art of millinery with a modern unconventional twist. Edgy statement pieces are a staple of the brand, but Monstruosité also focuses on creating pieces that allow the everyday woman to feel elegant and fashionable.

Kerry Bannigan, CEO of Nolcha Fashion Week shares; “In our continued efforts to support independent fashion designers we are thrilled to welcome Monstruosité to our runway this season. Her innovative designs will capture the audience and definitely create many new relationships and followers of her brand.”
