Blog-DerbyHatCountdownPoster-2015-4Hats Several years ago, a lady named Jen contacted me regarding a custom Derby hat design. She told me that she had fallen in love with my “Corinne” Derby hat.


Jen had found a beautiful pink and chocolate brown print dress that she liked and wondered if I could recreate the original Corinne in a warm ivory silk with chocolate trims. The result was a luscious new Corinne wide brim design in ivory dupioni silk trimmed with a chocolate organza Marguerite, matching brown satin sash, tulle and buttons.


Jen was thrilled when she received her chapeau. I asked her what she would like to name the new hat design. She promptly replied, “Sojen’s Corinne” in honor of her gorgeous Canadian Warmblood named Sojen.

I received an email from Jen when she was en route to the Derby. She told me that she never let the hat out of her sight for one minute, even on the plane. She and her Sojen’s Corinne were clearly on their way to the Derby adventure of a lifetime!
