"People will put anything on their heads, it seems to me for two reasons: either it keeps them warm, or it makes them feel cute."
-- Elizabeth Zimmermann, 1971
A lifetime of bad hair days and a lifelong dream of being a milliner guided me back to school a couple of years ago. Hat school. Desiring to learn the skills and techniques enshrined in the French world of chapellerie, I learned from my teachers and peers, and found nirvana while doing so. I love making hats and love to see people wearing them and feeling good. I know that the right hat can enhance individual beauty and instill the happy confidence that accompanies that awareness. Some call it joy, I call it the right hat.
Keeping it simple: one style, great fabric, a few colors. For my first collection, I am jumping on the bucket bandwagon with le Monceau. (Mon seau...*wink*)
Crushable, packable, it goes into your bag and then straight to your head. Feel fabulous, be warm, and start collecting Harris Pat hats!
Le Monceau (Soufflé) Puffy and warm, silver and silk-lined...waterproof, cozy, with a bit of flash.
