About Collection Collaborators Facts Where to buy




The idea for The Hatterie began in early 2008. I was on my way home from a weekend in Manhattan with a friend who was helping me meet some new people and do some networking for my upcoming cross-country move. During the flight home I was flipping through fashion magazines and was stopped by this Marc Jacobs add with Victoria Beckham wearing a lace mask. The mask was not particularly striking but the concept got me thinking.

Instantly pulling out my sketchbook. I jotted down the ideas as they rushed through my head and thus it began. When I arrived home I began assembling my ideas, cutting and sewing lace and tulle into veils. At that point I hadn’t even considered making an actual hat but I was well on my way. I moved to Manhattan on July 1st, 2008, my friend Elisabeth had this amazing apartment in the lower east side with a room opening up on August 1st so I camped out on the couch until I had a space to call my own. I spent my days working a 9 to 6 job and my nights sewing hats until the early hours of the morning. I hadn’t thought of selling them yet, I was just making them because it made me happy and they were great gifts for all my girlfriends. Everything changed when I met Ricardo, he was a breath of fresh air that filled my lungs and soothed my soul. He has such a strong creative energy that I had to work harder and faster than he did. He is the one who truly believed in my ability and in me; he loved my work and thought that I could really do what I had set out to do, bringing hats back to everyday life. Being an artist himself, he was well connected and used those connections to help me on my way. He arranged a photo shoot with Giovanni and the location was set to be in his freshly painted apartment in Brooklyn. I was lucky enough to have worked in the fashion industry since 2000 so my wardrobe was vast enough to organize the entire photo shoot without having to purchase a ridiculous amount of props and clothing. With Cindy’s help we put together the outfits, she threw in a couple items of her own to finish the look. The following morning I hauled everything to Brooklyn in a cab, spending the last $10 I had to my name. I brought 12 bottles of cheap red wine, Elisabeth picked up the fruit and we made sangria. I put everyone into their first outfits and did the girls make-up and the shoot began. The entire shoot was from noon to about 11pm, modeling, arranging shots, styling and touching up make-up myself was the most difficult part. But now that everything is complete I welcome you to view my labor of love, The Hatterie…for crazy people who like hats.
