What Makes a Great Hat?
So what makes a great hat? A hat that makes a statement without any words needed. When you wear “the hat” it signifies confidence and individuality knowing it may raise some eyebrows and maybe cause a commotion. You can sense what people are thinking, “Wherever did she find that hat?” or, “that is one sexy hat and she looks amazing in it.” But one thing is for certain; “the hat” or “the (right) hat” can signify respect for certain situations as a statement of self-confidence and elegance.

We worked with Julie Danforth, an award winning Seattle designer, for this particular shoot and chose models that we believed could wear a hat and still shine underneath it all.

Martha Sliter once said; “Wearing a hat versus not wearing a hat is the difference between looking adequate and looking your best. A hat is a flag, a shield, a bit of armor, and the badge of femininity. A hat is the difference between wearing clothing and wearing a costume; it’s the difference between being dressed and being dressed up; it’s the difference between looking adequate and looking your best.” We had set out to produce a shoot that would be kept simple and yet have that timeless high society look from the past that is still part of today’s fashion world. In closing, I pose this question to everyone, “What, in your opinion, makes a great hat?” Is it the creator’s vision that make the hat? Is it the owner who wears the hat, the accessories, the outfit or all of the above?
