In high school, it got to the point that, I found myself confiscating old table cloths and curtains to make my fashion creations and I even had a side custom design fashion business going with friends at my school.

It wasn't long before friends and family began asking for their own custom designed hat/crown.

I absolutely love the creativity and welcome the challenge of creating custom designed and custom fit hats that make people very, very happy!
