    Deborah of New York is one of my favorite millinery designers. She was not afraid to take chances, and so created some amazing hats in the 70s. This is a black wool hat with an asymmetric, set in brim. One side of the brim is swept up and the other is tied down in a design that Deborah of New York used on another hat I posted some time ago. This hat is decorated with crinoline, and lots of it......around the brim, and a huge swirled rose on the left side. It is also decorated with three long trimmed feathers that sweep out to the right from the crinoline rose. Then there are the sequins - all over the underside of the brim, along the shaft of the feathers, zigzaging across the crinoline trim along the edge of the brim, and of course, in the rose. This hat simply glitters because of all the sequins. The hat also has amazing flow largely due to the swirled design of the hat which is repeated in the rose and feather trim. This is not a hat for the faint of heart, but it is one for a woman who knows who she is and has the self confidence to wear it. Amazingly, it is unworn and still has the original tags from the 70s. The hat is a size 213/4 which alas is too small for me. I love this hat!

      Thank you inky and valentino - Divine Darling (the name given to her by Bellin68) looks great in almost anything, but this hat is a real showpiece!
