The Kentucky Derby Museum winner for 2009 Derby Hat Exhibition.
We are pleased to have been selected for our third year of the contest!
This is a Limited Edition Design and the Last One!
Inspired by Derby Decades Simply Chic exhibit
millinery designer Mary Ann Koch created a design using new and antique materials.
The striking crown is ramie sisal straw. The dramatic brim is layered sinamay straw. Antique parisian feathers are used to make the feather mount and antique straw braid band around the crown.
