On the subject of hats, boutique owner Michelle Tasman says, “Around Derby, anything goes. From the demure to the outrageous, it’s about what makes you happy.”
Rodeo Drive is the spot for Louisville women looking for unique hats this season. They only order one-of-a-kind fascinators and hats from local and international milliners. There’s a focus on helping clients match dresses to hats and vice versa.
Local milliners like Attitudes by Angie, Formé, and The Hat Girls can customize per clients’ whim and prices run the gamut from $125 to $1,000.
The boutique works all year long with designers to make their Derby selection, showing their suppliers the season’s hottest looks so they can design accordingly.
Here are just a few of the looks on deck for Louisville’s busiest hat season.
