Trip to Westchester for HATtitude

They've Got HATtitude
Last week I hopped aboard MetroNorth to join my sister, Jeanne Markel, and her friend, Tara Coniaris, for the ArtsWestchester Annual Arts Awards Luncheon in Tarrytown. Both women are involved in the art scene in Westchester County, New York. Tara is the President of the Board of Trustees of the Katonah Museum of Art and Jeanne is the Co-Vice President.

ArtsWestchester has an exhibit on until April 12 called HATtitude, which includes 150 hats from 40 milliners and private collections. Many luncheon attendees wore hats in honor of the exhibit. I supplied Millinery-to-Go for Jeanne and Tara.
 Jeanne wearing a mini-boater which I made for my
bridal millinery class at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
It's cotton velvet with tulle.
Tara is wearing my Marie Mercie hat from Paris.
 Jeanne checks in.
ArtsWestchester is New York State's largest, private,
not-for-profit service organization for the arts.
 Several milliners had hats for sale at the luncheon. 
Many of the guests really looked terrific in
their outfits and hats. 
A study in black and white.
I thought this lady's colors were wonderful for Spring,
but I also loved her boutonniere.
 A hat as big as Texas.
The Yorktown High School Dancers received an award 
and also performed. ArtsWestchester provides accessibility to the
arts for all the county's residents through education and
services for artists.
Post-luncheon, we drove to White Plains to see
the HATtitude exhibit. ArtsWestchester is
housed in a magnificent, old bank building.

 Hats were available to try on.


 Stunning examples from many eras.


 Gentlemen were not excluded.
Pharrel Williams would be happy with this topper.
 Just plain pretty.
 A hat by my friend, Debra Rapoport, made
from Viva paper towels.
Debra is featured in the new documentary, Advanced Style,
in theaters soon.
 Any beekeepers in the house?
Another Debra creation.
 The show includes a re-creation of a
milliner's workroom.

 A darling "Doll Hat."

 A picture hat.

 An inventive use of felt.
A wedding hat.
 The ArtsWestchester bank building is a
fabulous place to show art.

 A perfect mother-of-the-bride chapeau.

Come on people, show some
HATtitude!
À Bientôt!

  3. what fun! I was just looking at this online shop, because they usually have the most whimsical and outrageously flamboyant shoes you'll ever see, and they've really expanded their clothing offerings and I couldn't help thinking of you when I saw some of the dresses they're doing now. http://www.kronkron.com/index.php?acao=itemsByBrand&type=&brand=53 I just wish their website allowed you to zoom in on the photos, because it would be nice to get a closer look at them.
