Hazel & Florange
Though not a true boutique, Hazel and Florange is an exceptional design studio operated by New Orleans designer Andi Eaton. The clothing is inspired by two women from Louisiana, who Andi calls ‘les muses’. All clothing is locally made and designed with the Louisiana lifestyle in mind. The studio is open by appointment only but Hazel and Florange can also be found at pop-up trunk shows and other fashion events across the South.

Trashy Diva began as a vintage clothing shop in 1996, before developing into a full-fledged clothing company in 1999 when the store introduced a two-piece clothing line. Today, Trashy Diva boasts several additional designs, which can be found in boutiques around the world. The name ‘Trashy Diva’ was chosen because of the store’s original focus on vintage items – one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
