Hats create their own mystique and the craftsmanship that goes into making the hats is a bonus. I truly believe that making hats is a lost art and not a lot of milliners do what I do... which is creating a work of art. The challenge I have is making hats accessible to the public and keeping it couture. There is too much mass production out there and not enought originality. Not all fashion is fashionable. What happened to being original?
