Made in my millinery studio in the Hollywood Hills.

I carved the hat block to make this hat in one of my signature shapes. It's a cross between a top hat, a Victorian English Riding hat and a mad hatter. This classic black hat is one of my most popular designs. It's gone to Ascot the Kentucky Derby, Mardi Gras and been worn on stage by rockstars.

I used parisisal (the queen of straws) and surrounded the crown with black silk. It takes a master weaver 7 days to weave one piece of straw by hand. Then it takes me 3 days to steam, block, shape and trim a hat.

Measure 1/4" above your ears and around where a hat would rest snugly and I'll custom make a hat to fit you.
Custom made hats are not returnable.

PLEASE PAY DIRECTLY THROUGH PAYPAL. (They'll take your credit card.)

My hats have appeared in Victoria Magazine, been commissioned by Disney Studios for the Oscars, worn at the Royal Wedding, Ascot, Buckingham Palace Garden Party, Kentucky Derby & Melbourne Cup.

The price listed is wholesale to the public. Fine boutiques double the price to their customers.

This is not a rain hat and should not be exposed to rain.
Some countries may charge a customs fee, which I have no control over.
This may delay delivery by several days.
