K has just loved her hat making classes and she has a wonderful teacher!  This semester with Headwear Design II, the students had a place to display their hats for sale in a local gallery.  


K submitted 11 hats but I can’t point them out to you in these pictures.   We have heard about most of them.  

We were thrilled she sold 2 hats from the gallery!!  Yeah!!


After a week at the gallery, there was a big closing reception.  A reporter was there for a local fashion (online) magazine at K’s invitation and 2 of K’s friends came in support of her.   Very sweet!!



I love how they suspended the hats.  A great display plus ease of fittings!


I think this must be the class.  I love that many of them had hats on for the evening event!  🙂




Another part of that week for K was the school’s Fashion Show.   She was asked by another senior student (Arushi) to design and make a hat for one of Arushia’s outfits in the show.  A HUGE DEAL!!!

This is K modeling the hat while everything is still in process, so the student could see it: 


Both hat pieces are from wool felt.  

Here you can see the back of the coat/dress has a profile which was the inspiration for the hat having the black profile of a face.fashion-show-hat-2


K got to see the dress rehearsal of the fashion show (tickets to attend the Fashion Show are quite pricey) and snapped a few pictures of the model with the whole outfit.  



K says the model has the black part back too far but she hoped they corrected that for the actual shows.  

Next week is K’s final critique week so this week has had her busy finishing more purses, more hats, and more accessories.   🙂

K’s activities this week

This week for K’s new intership she had interesting experiences.  

The first job was on the 80th floor at an exclusive club.  (Floor number eighty!)  Yada Yada!!  (I would have been   s i c k   over that elevator ride!)  She said her ears popped twice on the way down.   (Blech!)

The second job was on the 11th floor of Macy’s.  You say you’ve never been to the 11th floor?  That is because it is a private floor.  This was a ‘by invitation only’ event.  She met one of the VPs.  Such company she is keeping!  🙂
Here is a hat she made out of wool and added ribbon roses she made:
We got a watercolor flower in the mail this week which was a nice treat! 
She learned how to make her own silk flowers.  So of course she dyed her own silk fabric to start.
