One of kind Hats & Fascinators made in Louisville, KY home of the prestigious Kentucky Derby.


"Bud-acious" features sinamay from London, formed onto a disc with loops and formed flowers on a headband. This light olive fascinator is complete with mini flower buds in periwinkle, light green and soft yellow. It's a delightful and dainty spring and summer look.


Each unique piece has its own name resembling a horse you might see at the racetrack, paddock or barn. Perfect for wearing to Breeder's Cup, Keeneland, the Kentucky Derby and KY Oaks races or other Equestrian events, such as Polo Matches, Steeplechases, Saratoga, Del Mar, Preakness, Belmont, Melbourne Cup or the Royal Ascot.


Each hat also comes with two lucky betting numbers to take to the racetrack.


These show stopping hats and fascinators are also stunning at Weddings, Teas, Garden Parties, Church, Easter...anywhere that fine headwear is de rigeur.


Two of Hats Off by Helen hats were chosen for a juried yearlong exhibit of 20 hats at the Kentucky Derby Museum 2015-2016 and in 2018-19 the "Judges Award" went to our creative fascinator. In 2019-2020 our hat entry won the “Most Representative of the Derby Award."
