annedepasquale's Shop Announcement

I have been a Broadway milliner for over 17 years. Former JLO hat designer. I'm a painter, textile designer… artist. I handcraft pieces of wearable artwork-hats, accessories and more that are classic while maintaining a trendy edge. If you want unique items- my shop is for you. Welcome! Handmade limited edition accessories are our speciality.

I make Floppy hats (fishnet shown on Kate Hudson above), Fascinators, Bridal, Fedoras, Cloches, Sun Hats, Kentucky Derby, Royal Wedding...women and men's.. even hats for children. I take the classics and put my own modern spin on them. Whatever your heart desires, I can make it for you using only the finest materials & sewing techniques.

I started my career in textiles, jewelry and fashion, working for Donna Karan, JLO, Betsy Johnson, Anna Sui, and Liz Claiborne. In the past 17+years I've been creating hats for Broadway since 1998 just to name a couple: Cabaret, Amazing Grace, The Elephant Man, Spiderman, Annie, The Lion King, Motown, Violet, On The Town and many more. Movies (The Dictator just to name one) and custom work for private clients and celebrities.

I mix the classic with the modern to create things that are unique. I'm inspired by everything retro and modern. I like to merge the sculpture of making hats with the art of painting to create intersting and inovative designs

BAAZAR magazine says "The STANDOUTS of the season Vintage inspired silhouettes. What's old is new again."

My hats and bags are handmade pieces of art. I challange myself to create the most unique, cutting edge designs from the traditions of the past. I love to paint, and use precious metals from my jewelry background in conjunction with classic millinery materials...I pull from the past, but push myself them new, while still keeping things wearible and luxurious.

The hats are hand blocked or hand sewn in NYC. Old School Millinery with a modern edge! I cross reference a lot of materials. I use millinery straw in many of my hand bags, and sheet medals,usually used in jewelry making, on my hats.
My NYC studio is smoke free.
