Our celebration of headwear of all descriptions – from the quotidian cap to the fanciful fascinator – is back!

Bid For A Hat

We have invited artists and designers to create stunning Featured Hats that our models will wear during the runway show for a unique auction.

Artists + Designers include Bill Butler, Eric Epstein, Julie Frankle, Bob Gregson, Violet Harlow, Ann Lehman, Jane Miller, Ruth Sack, Roxanne Faber-Savage, David Sepulveda, Suzan Shutan, + Sideways & Askew (Hayne Bayless + Liz Pagano)

Sell Your Hat

Don your most fabulous chapeau – whether you whip it up yourself or unearth it from grandma’s attic – and, if you choose, sell your Guest Hat to others during the event to benefit the Workshop.

Food + Drink

It’s all happening in the Park of the Arts with 116 Crown, Caseus Fromagerie + Bistro, Katalina’s Bakery, and Meat & Co.
