WHAT HATS WILL YOU BE WEARING THIS SPRING and SUMMER?

Oooo! Spring scents sneaking up on you ... Mmmm, smell them? Warm breezes creeping in too. We can't wait to get to have a stroll on the beach ... even if it's in a sweater (lightweight and pastel, of course). We want to feel new and young and freshly bloomed, no matter what our age ... SPRING is like that ... teasing us with promise.

Promise YOURSELF a perfectly fitted hat. A hat that flatters you and protects you or launches you into a new season of FUN!

PINK! says the fashion magazines! Pink is THE color ... unless you read a different magazine ... then it's GREEN, darling! Grab a little green. GREEN is all the rage. Green is the scene... unless, of course, you don't look good in green.

No matter what clothing color you zero in on this spring and summer, Our Natural color knotted sisals are PERFECT with your entire wardrobe.



We'd like to suggest a few classic styles from our Spring and Summer Collection.

We vote for knotted sisal --(All hats shown above) all lined with capenet, of course - our clients
are worth the extra step to
guarantee their summer hat
retains it's shape longer!


He'll love one too!

For the bride, designing her headpiece or hat is as important as choosing her dress.

It is the most beautiful headpiece she will ever wear and an opportunity to wrap up in personal fantasy rather than the dictates of fashion.


I will custom design your bridal headpiece or chapeau as individual as you are.

Custom designing for the mother of the bride or groom, bridesmaids and flower girls are a part of the magic I’ll help you weave for the wedding day.

Foreign Affair

Parade of hats on display at Churchill Downs...

"The second most entertaining parade on the first Saturday in May, next to the Kentucky Derby "post parade", is the parade of hats on display at Churchill Downs.

From the fantastic to the sublime, there are no rules or limits.


Derby Museum Hat Contest Winner 2004

In the Clubhouse and Paddock women of grace and taste sport classy, fashionable styles.

In the infield, the headwear
has a zanier character. Does a Derby hat improve one's luck at picking winners? Some say,
"yes, it certainly helps."

ASCOT, ANYONE??
Ascot Racecourse, founded in 1711 is the world’s most famous racecourse. The very best Flat racing takes place at Ascot between March and October, with the main highlight undoubtedly being the internationally renowned Royal Ascot in June. The five-day meeting is a perfect opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere of Royal Ascot, particularly for those who may not have been able to attend before.

STORE YOUR WINTER HAT AWAY with CARE !

Your hat will thank you next fall when you meet again.

BRUSH it gently with a lint brush or a clean toothbrush works well
STUFF the crown gently with tissue.
REST it atop an old lampshade that has been cut down enough to support the tissued crown. This will prevent the brim from supporting the weight of your hat. A similar shape can be made from poster board
