The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #21, the Liza Der13-120 hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 1 at maggiemae.com.
We are now just 3 weeks away from the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby. In anticipation of the traditional Garland of Roses that gets draped over the winning Derby horse, I created a new Liza chapeau that captures this longstanding tradition. The Kentucky Derby is all about the ROSES!
I began by creating a “Liza” hat base in black dupioni silk that measures just under 18 inches across.
I trimmed the hat with a large rose curl in red silk organza. Keeping the Derby tradition of mint juleps in mind, I fashioned a medley of lime green organza and spring green taffeta leaves to frame the rose.
For more views of the “Liza” hat design shown above, please visit the Liza Der13-120 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 21 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 20 Derby chapeaux and 20 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
