The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #33, the “Chelsea”, another brand new medium brim Derby chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 3 at maggiemae.com.
This year for Derby, I wanted to create a new Chelsea in the Pantone color called “Marsala”. Pantone, known world-wide for their color matching system, is closely watched by the fashion industry for their choices of the most popular current colors.
I fashioned the base of the hat out of a Marsala metallic taffeta.
For the trim centerpiece I fashioned a large rose curl out of alternating layers of deep burgundy taffeta and a crinkled wine organza, and framed it with a medley of mocha, soft gold organza leaves and black hat veiling.
For more views of the “Chelsea” hat design shown above, please visit the Chelsea Der60-043 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 32 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
