Authentically New Orleans!
Queen of Orleans is a New Orleans centric store located in the heart of New Orleans, LA. You can currently shop with us online or in the historic French Market. Our mission is to create and celebrate one of New Orleans special traditions- The Second Line parade and the Second Line Umbrella. We hand craft each umbrella paying careful detail to fabrics, trims, and color schemes.
Owned by husband and wife Dexter and Kourtenay Roberts who have lovingly carried on the tradition since 2015. During the Mardi Gras Season and special occasions around the city, you can find owner and lead designer Kourtenay parading as a traditional Babydoll with the Black Storyville Baby Dolls, a historic group whose traditions trace back to the historic neighborhood of Storyville. The decorated umbrella is a signature accessory for this adored tradition. Learn more about New Orleans historic baby dolls here.
Second Line Umbrellas traditionally are created for someone by someone they knew and they are not easily found in shops. Queen of Orleans changed that by creating these beautiful works of art for everyone across the globe.
We thank you for visiting our site and we hope to see you and serve you very soon!
