The Hat




Her name is Kim Brown-Dye, a full time milliner and sometimes costumier. Her work can be seen on MTV and Spin magazine to name a few. She builds each hat from scratch using buckram & wire construction which is then covered & trimmed using the finest materials & hand finishing. I think they are gorgeous. Turn around time is usually 4-6 weeks. Click on the link to see the rest of her creations. Truly gifted lady.

"A hat is a flag, a shield, a bit of armor, and the badge of femininity. A hat is the difference between wearing clothes and wearing a costume; it's the difference between being dressed and being dressed up; it's the difference between looking adequate and looking your best. A hat is to be stylish in, to glow under, to flirt beneath, to make all others seem jealous over, and to make all men feel masculine about. A piece of magic is a hat." ~Martha Sliter
