A lady isn't fully dressed unless she is wearing a hat...and a fine one at that!
While in NYC for fashion week SS17, I found my way into a 'millinery maven'
The Hat Shop NYC. Nestled in the sought-after shopping district of SOHO, established in 1995 by the ever so lovely Linda Pagan... from the moment I walked in, I was overly excited when I saw an array of gorgeous designs!
After exploring my options, I decided the 'boater' style was most fitting for me...
Worn straight on the head as an 'Edwardian' look or tipped a 'Gaucho' look. I begin 'customizing' my hat. I chose the straw, the color scheme and dyed pheasant feathers trimming for accent. My head actually got measured too lol
WELL, this is the look when your custom hat gets a 'LUXURY UPGRADE' for celebrating 21years in business on behalf of the owner!
Yes, ultimately the hat I received was constructed using a high quality Swiss Straw called Paglina. It’s luxury! It’s handmade from a bundle straw….that means someone sews a long skein of straw into a basic shape then it get’s blocked (moulded) onto it’s own hat block for about 2 days.
Esp. being that I was able to rock it at Beyonce Formation Tour because in reality the Queen Bey was my sole inspiration for this stellar creation!
Please visit/contact 'Linda' at
