The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #61, the “Taylor”, a brand new Derby top hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 3 at maggiemae.com.
Several years ago, a lady contacted me regarding a custom Derby hat design. Together we created the “Tess” hat which has been a fan favorite for years for weddings and teas as well as the Kentucky Derby.
I fashioned the base of the hat out of a mocha and black striped taffeta and added a flat, wired black dupioni silk brim.
For the trim centerpiece I fashioned a single black silk organza rose curl and framed it with a medley of chocolate and gold organza leaves. I nestled the floral centerpiece into the center of the bow and let long tails of the mocha tulle spill down the brim.
For more views of the “Taylor” hat design shown above, please visit the Taylor Der186-001 webpage at maggiemae.com.
