The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #9, the “Sophie’s Stefanie” design that is found in the Derby Hat Salon 2 at maggiemae.com.
Recently a lady named Sophie contacted me regarding a custom wide brim hat design for the Dubai World Cup. Sophie loved the “Debbie’s Stefanie” hat for its simple elegance but she had a vision for hot pink colors and a Marguerite trim that would make the hat truly her own.
I created the nearly 21-inch Stefanie hat foundation in a rich black dupioni silk.
And I couldn’t think of a more perfect chapeau to showcase today as we await the much-anticipated 141st Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks on May 1st and 2nd!
For more views and details about the “Sophie’s Stefanie” chapeau shown above, please visit the Sophie’s Stefanie Der170-005 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 9 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 8 Derby chapeaux and 8 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
