Classic black hat-like fascinator, with scalloped brim and all around veiling. Hatinator: formal occasion or race day, Ascot or luncheon "JUNE"

JUNE is a black fascinator in an elegant, almost retro kind of style, featuring clean lines, and shallow sloped crown with artistically scalloped brim. Adorned with feminine all-around black veiling, small dotted coque feathers, and black Swarovski crystal centered sinamay petals. Perfect for the Kentucky Derby, Pegasus World Cup, Ascot Horse Racing, especially in the winner's circle! Or June will be your favorite Church hat, appropriate for even the most stylish service attendee. Although June has the look of a hat, this is more of a "hatinator" headpiece, secured in place by a millinery elastic, which is placed behind the head, under the hair. Light weight and easy to wear. ~scalloped edge brim, veiling all around, sinamay flower w/crystal center~ Stand beautifully apart from the crowd in an absolutely elegant and confident way! This is a one-of-a-kind hand blocked and stitched (all by me) piece, which is individually numbered: an original work of wearable art.

  • I live and work in upstate New York, near the beautiful Saratoga Race Course, which was, at least in part, the inspiration for me to explore millinery. I have been making and selling my work locally and in upscale boutiques across the US for some time, participating in an assortment of "hatty" events along the way. I have met and worked with many wonderful new friends, thanks to millinery. My work has been featured and can be seen gracing the runway, paired with the beautiful fashions of amazingly talented designers, at galas and charity events, in the winner"s circle and in wearable art shows. My hats and fascinators have taken me across America and back, and most recently, I am honored to be exhibiting at the 2020 Great Exhibition of London hat week!   

     I share a portion of my proceeds with animal welfare organizations with every piece I sell.

     ******* With a visual artist Mom, and musician Dad, I've been around creativity all my life. I come from a long line of creative people: art, music and even inventing are all in my genes. ..... My university study focus was photo illustration and design, and I continue to learn new things every single day. I began working with millinery around 2012, and for me the creative process is ever-evolving, one design builds on the last... one idea leads to another and I find that I am forever on to something new! I love blocking, sculpting and stitching a flat piece of raw material into an entirely new entity: a three dimensional work of wearable art! I hope the joy and excitement of my process shines through for you in every piece of my finished work.
