We are doing something a little bit different. We are are presenting a special set of hats. The design name is Jenny Rose, created with the Kentucky Derby Festival in mind. Hattingdon was “born” in Louisville by the way.
Let’s start off with the classic hat followed with two gorgeous fashion hats.
We have two for you. A picture hat, and a “slice”.
The Jennie Rose series are some of the most popular hats Vivian has ever created.
Red Roses and the Derby
Red roses became a Kentucky Derby tradition in the early 1880s. Back in 1883, ladies who attended Derby parties around Louisville all received a red rose.
The Churchill Downs President at the time, Colonel Meriwether Lewis Clark, saw what a success the roses were, and decided to make the association between the flower and the Kentucky Derby in 1884.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
