MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 89 of 101

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

Today we are featuring Hat #89, a “Liza” wide brim white silk hat design trimmed in a color that I have fallen in love with: Radiant Orchid!

Blog-DerbyHatCountdownPoster-2015-89HatsLast spring’s Pantone color palette was wonderfully balanced with brilliant tones and luscious pastels set against the more neutral Paloma (gray) and Sand. And there was this new shade they were calling “Radiant Orchid” which made my heart sing!

I decided to create a special wide brim hat for the Derby as an homage to Radiant Orchid with a MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® twist.

I chose an all white dupioni silk hat base to make the trim colors pop. It features a simple rose curl centerpiece fashioned out of an orchid organza nestled in a bed of bright plum pink metallic taffeta leaves, surrounded by layer upon layer of orchid and plum tulle. My head is brimming with ideas for more orchid-inspired chapeaux to come!
