I make fancy hats!

My name is Megan, and I live in the beautiful city of Seattle, working on fancy hats in my little studio overlooking Lake Union by Gasworks Park!

I'm a Midwest girl at heart, born and raised in Columbia, MO. I earned my BFA in Illustration at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design, met some amazing artists & collaborators along the way, then journeyed West in search of scenic beauty. I definitely found it in the Emerald City!

I'm equally inspired by decadence and simplicity. Lolita fashion, Victorian mourning clothing, Art Nouveau beauties, 1920s flappers, French bohemia, modern Japanese Kimono styling (Kimono Hime magazine), fairytales, nature, mermaids, the sea, art deco, stripes, Marie Antoinette, and burlesque beauties all inspire me greatly. I covet the whimsical, the beautiful, and the absurd. How silly and impractical is a tiny hat? Very, yet I love it just the same!
