MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 10 of 101

The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!

Today we are featuring Hat #10, the Angelina Der106-003 hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 2 at


I created the very first “Angelina” a couple of seasons ago in black dupioni silk and silk organza, trimming her with black silk roses, satin leaves and distinctive silk organza “feathers” that were shaped to extend beyond the brim.


I recently decided to create a new Angelina for the Derby season that would also be suitable for weddings and other special occasions.

I began with the original Angelina design which I fashioned out of a cream dupioni silk with an ivory silk organza brim overlayer.


For the centerpiece I fashioned a single Marguerite out of black silk organza for the petals with a black pebble button center.


I framed the flower with black satin leaves and a matching satin sash.


Finally, for the signature Angelina drama,  I added the “feathers” which I created from a black silk organza in varying lengths for dramatic effect.



Our new Angelina is ready for her debut on the Red Carpet at Churchill Downs. And wouldn’t she be just perfect for Royal Ascot, fancy teas and weddings?
