Lilly Daché

I recently discovered Lilly Daché, the once famed French Hollywood hat designer, when I watched Designing Women (with Gregory Peck and Lauren Bacall), her hats are now highly valuable vintage collectibles. In 1940 she won the Neiman Marcus Fashion Award for her interestingly designed and high in demand couture hats.


Philip Treacy

Sorry it has been taking me so long to post, I’ve just been re-adjusting to having dialup internet… ugh.

Anyways, Philip Treacy is one of the world’s most famous hat designers, designing for American fashion icons Sarah Jessica Parker (ew, but she is a fashion icon), Lady Gaga, and etc. I really enjoy his campy-couture aesthetic as there probably isn’t an random meaningless object he hasn’t somehow sewed onto a hat.

Hats are one of the more unpopular aspects of fashion that I wish would pick up in mainstream fashion (hair too, when did people forget about decorating their heads?!).
