This Fall for Women: The Visor

imageimageDSC_1592DSC_1583DSC_1613image

As a milliner, I would love to see women wear a hat every day, and women do still love hats (just ask them). The question is, what would move a woman to wear more hats?  When I see a woman the most comfortable in her hat it is, generally speaking, in a casual setting with friends, usually on the weekends.  This may be to relieve herself  from the usual weekday task of perfecting that fabulous coiffure.  These hats are usually stylish and compliment the wearer, but lack that extra something that sets them (the woman and the hat) apart. When a hat that makes more of a statement is worn however, a person can feel as though the hat is wearing them and not the other way around. Does it have to be form or function?  To me the answer was clear. For fall, I am introducing a line of visor hats that range from casual to formal with an emphasis on shape and style that women will love to wear any day or evening of the week. Many of these hats are cut a bit higher in the back to accommodate a hairstyle  that is pulled to the back. For the more casual designs, this will help alleviate the dreaded hat head during the week and still cover that bed head on the weekends. For the more formal styles, women can utilize the most impactful of accessories for evening, the hat, while incorporating a chic, elegant hairstyle. Stay tuned for more…
