MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 2 of 101

The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!

Today we are featuring Hat #2, the “Liza”, a wide brim design found in Derby Hat Salon 1.

Blog-DerbyHatCountdownPoster-2015-2HatsI have a fondness for the Liza. It was one of my earliest designs for the Derby Hat Collection and for a long time it was my widest brim. Measuring approximately 17″ end to end, there is something about the Liza that makes her easy to wear and  love. And this style has many, many different “looks” as you can see if you pop into Salon 1 of the Derby Hat Collection

The Liza Der13-113 was the result of a customer’s request for a classic wide brim style that would be suitable not only for the Derby but also for weddings and fancy teas. Created in silver dupioni silk and trimmed with a single jumbo navy silk organza Marguerite, navy and charcoal silk bow loops and deep blue tulle, I think you’ll agree that this grand Lady is simply scrumptious and fits the bill for just about any occasion, including the Derby!
