Steinmann's "Michaela" hat uses dupioni silk to create a wide brim hat, as well as a large rose curl, and one of her trademarks, several silk organza "feathers." She doesn't like to use real feathers.
Vintage netting, featured on designs like Steinmann's "Marguerite" hat, is still a favorite among the Derby crowd, as is her use of pleated satin.
This "Candy" creation by Steinmann showcases the bright pinks and flowers that Derby-goers love, like the fabric peony that dominates this wide brim design.
The ruffled edges of Steinmann's "Jamie" hat have long been a tradition at the Derby, as well as the braiding and bows that adorn the top.
A classic Derby design, Siverson's "Triple Crown" hat, is piled high with feathers and floral motifs. Large hats full of feathers are a nostalgic reminder of past years.
Siverson's special wire design within the brim of each of her hats allows for them to be easily reshaped once customers receive them. This "Gentle Breeze" hat showcases her characteristic "sexy swoop."
Siverson's customers call her hats, like this "Ocean Mist" design, a "party in a box" because she uses balloons to stabilize the hats within their boxes when she ships them.
