Making straw hats became my passion after being diagnosed with skin cancer in 2015
I'm a Artist, Designer and Mother of three. I've had a career in clothing design working for Federated, Macys and Giordano in Hong Kong and S/S18 Lola Hats!
I was diagnosed with skin cancer in the Spring of 2015. I desperately sought out hats to protect my face from the sun.
As I started to heal, I began designing my own hats. I enrolled in the Millinery program at F.I.T in Sept. 2015 and I was hooked.
Each hat is designed and created in our Brooklyn studio at the Navy Yard.
Beach Hare hats are a play on classic modern shapes with a downtown vibe that takes you from the city to the beach.
I encourage everyone to wear a Hat!
