Trina Turk's Hat; Trina Turk's Swimwear Runway Show Miami; Louise Green Millinery

Remember how last month I was stalking The Lady in the Hat on the High Desert Tour in an attempt to find out where said dramatic topper was from? And then it turned out The Lady in the Hat was the one and only fab designer Trina Turk, who I then bumped into a few weeks later at the Dwell on Design show in LA — and again didn’t say hi, but instead gawked like a groupie? Well, thanks to the Trina Turk Facebook page, we now know where THE Hat is from! (I know, the plot thickens.) It’s by Louise Green Millinery. British-born (natch) Louise Green is based in LA and has tons of exuberant, dramatic hats. Fancy a look? Louise Green made all of the fab over-the-top straw hats for the Trina Turk 2011 runway fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim at The Raleigh in Miami Beach, Florida on July 15th. The NYT also did a piece on hats this weekend, fedoras namely. Did you see it? What do you think of hats making a comeback? Are you a fan, a fanatic or phobic?
