REMEMBER: IF YOU SUBSCRIBE, ENTER YOUR NAME AND EMAIL. I was born and raised in Louisville, KY and have been around the racetrack since I was a child. The Kentucky Derby is, indeed the greatest two minutes in sports! Although it is a sporting event, it is also a fashion event and the HAT/HEADWEAR is the most important thing for your ensemble. The tradition of the “hat” on Kentucky Derby and now Oaks (Friday before Derby) dates back over 100 years as does the Derby. I had a full page editorial in Business First in 2012, done many fashion shows, been on several news shows, made hats for many VIP's and media and my hats have been sold in Louisville's finest boutiques! I can custom make your Derby/Oaks hat via email pictures, telephone conversations or personal meetings. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries.
