The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #95, the “Valerie”, a wide brim Derby chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 1 at maggiemae.com.
I began by creating a hat foundation in rich red dupioni silk which measured nearly 18 inches across the brim. I then created a large rose curl by layering fuchsia dupioni silk and hot pink chiffon which I set into a medley of red satin leaves.
As I stood back to look at her, I realized I had found ”my funny Valentine.” Indeed, the stunning red “Valerie” chapeau was a romantic vision of loveliness and she was perfect for either the Kentucky Derby or the Oaks!
For more views of the “Valerie” hat design shown above, please visit the Valerie Der163-001 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 95 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 94 Derby chapeaux and 94 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
