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


This navy wool fascinator with elastic string to fasten under hair at the nape of the neck, but also has a clip. It is a percher style almost pillbox like, with crinoline "horsehair" loops and bow, 3 tall stripped coq wispy feathers, and curled navy pheasant feathers. Very European look - so make a royal princess envious!


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."
