KENTUCKY DERBY HATS, COUTURE LADIES HATS, FASCINATORS AND SAUCER HATS

What started off as a bad hair day turned into a wonderful career for me. While I was getting ready for work one morning, a hairbrush got stuck in my hair. What did I do? I put on a hat! I received so many compliments at work that day that my eyes were suddenly opened to the magic of wearing a hat. And that's when I decided to become a milliner. My first step was to enroll at New York's prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology, where I learned the skills needed to create to eye-catching, quality hats. That was 27 years ago, and I have been designing hats ever since. I am humbled that my clients have described my signature hats as being timeless and elegant, with a touch of Audrey Hepburn's classic style.

I handcraft each hat in my Kentucky studio, often designing them with specific events in mind -- like the horse races (the Kentucky Derby, the Kentucky Oaks, the Breeder's Cup, and Royal Ascot) as well as gala events and luncheons. Over the years, a few of my clients were even photographed wearing my custom designs to the Winner's Circle at Churchill Downs. That is always a tremendous honor. In addition, brides, as well as members of their wedding parties, often wear my hats on that most special day. Though my designs have won many awards, I gain the most satisfaction by working with individual clients to create a unique work of art that they will treasure for years.

Thank you for visiting my website. Looking forward to designing a special hat for you soon.

Lots of love,

Polly
