Welcome to A Derby Hat Countdown featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Our featured hat for Day 4 is the stunning “Regina’s Corinne” extra wide brim design found in Salon 2 of the Derby Hat Collection…
A wonderful lady named Regina contacted me last year for a custom Derby hat design. It was Regina’s first Derby adventure and her husband had given her a Derby hat with custom design consultation as a gift. Regina told me that she had fallen in love with my original “Corinne” hat…which has been a favorite among my customers for both the Derby and Royal Ascot as well as fancy teas and weddings.
Regina found a coral dress that she liked and wondered if I could add a splash of coral tones to the Corinne. The result was a luscious new Corinne design kicked up a notch and trimmed with a vibrant coral organza Marguerite, matching satin sash, tulle and buttons. When Regina received her hat, she said that it made her feel “like royalty”!
Like Regina, the Corinne style is one of my favorites. Every Derby season I receive requests for custom recreations of Derby hat classics here at MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®.
I wonder what someone will envision for the next custom version of this amazing chapeau… I guess we’ll all have to wait and see!
For more views and details about the Regina’s Corinne Der161-002 chapeau shown above, please visit the Regina’s Corinne webpage.
You’ll also find many other wide brim hats at my KY Derby Hat Collection. And if you’re looking for a smaller brim, perhaps even a fascinator, you’ll enjoy browsing all four Derby hat salons that offer just about every Derby hat style imaginable!
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Day 4 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
