Michael McCants studied at Glassboro State College and the Fashion Institute of Technology. He decided to take his love for creating custom one-of-a-kind designs and launched McCants Originale in 1982, quickly becoming known for his dramatic silhouettes, luxurious fabrics and original craftsmanship.
After a client commissioned him to design her wedding gown and headpiece, the vision and passion for designing bridal headpieces inspired Michael to pursue millinery. Since that time Michael has become one of the most sought-after milliners in the country.
Today, McCants Originale offers a luxury line of bridal headdresses and veils. Staying with the tradition of old-world craftsmanship, each headdress is made by hand and no two are alike. Michael incorporates the finest materials into each design, including Swarovski crystals, cultured pearls and semi-precious stones.
