Horses and Hats
As a native of Shelbyville, Kentucky, some of my earliest memories include attending horse shows at the local fairgrounds. While studying at the University of Louisville, I worked as a parimutuel clerk at Churchill Downs. During racing season, I was enthralled by the fashion, particularly ladies’ hats. A lifelong horse lover, I began riding and driving as an adult and today enjoy showing American Saddlebreds.
As a milliner, I create custom headpieces for a variety of clients and occasions: brides looking for an elegant yet non-traditional style; bridesmaids, wedding guests and churchgoers requesting bespoke pieces; patrons of the racetrack seeking to dazzle and inspire; and finally, drivers who want a refined and fashionable appearance without sacrificing vision or safety. All Bluegrass Belle pieces are one-of-a-kind, made with love and care, using the best materials.
During racing season, I work with local boutiques around Louisville, Kentucky to present my hats and fascinators with the latest fashions. Bluegrass Belle headpieces are also available year round for direct purchase.
