Courier Journal: Kentucky Derby hat trends 2021
UC grad designs hats and headpieces fit for Derby Day
As any seasoned Kentucky Derby-goer knows, your hat isn't just an accessory — it's the statement piece of your outfit.
Do you choose an elegant wide-brimmed hat or a sassy smaller fascinator? Will you be celebrating trackside on Millionaires Row or at a house party with friends? These are the questions a professional hat maker or milliner want to know as they help clients find that perfect statement headpiece for the 147th Run for the Roses held this year on May 1.
The Louisville Courier Journal featured designer and University of Cincinnati alumna Kenzie Kapp in a story about hat fashions for Derby Day.
Kapp earned her degree in fashion design from UC's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning in 2001. Since 2008, she's been putting her design skills to use making feathered fascinators and other high-end hats.
Kapp works with clients to create custom head-to-toe looks and also sells ready-made headpieces — and matching face masks — in her Louisville studio, The Mill, and at kenziekapp.com.
