SMALL HATS WITH VEILS are the latest fashion statement this season. If you want to be on the cutting edge of fashion, think small. Cocktail hats, pillbox hats and saucer hats with veiling are all the rage with couture millinery designers around the world. Some of these little gems have half or full veils that cover the face, but can also be worn turned up. Others have lashings of veiling on the top or back of these charming little hats. In addition to looking divine, they are as light as a feather and easy to pack when going to the Kentucky Derby, Royal Ascot or a wedding.
British milliners have always lead the way with trends in hat design, but they are extremely pricy. Amy Ward, a Hollywood milliner, set out to change that by making couture hats that practically everyone can afford. She lived and worked in the fashion industry in London for eleven years before making California her home. Amy creates fashion forward designs which she makes by hand, using the highest quality materials. And many of her hats are one-of-a-kind. She loves creating fanciful, elegant hats that can be purchased on her website and shipped worldwide.
Amy has made hats for all three royal weddings, Royal Ascot, Buckingham Palace Garden Party, Kentucky Derby and Melbourne Cup. Disney Studios commissioned her hats and she’s been featured in Victoria Magazine, Brides Magazine UK, Weddings Magazine, Hatlines, and Voyage LA.
