Kentucky Derby 2017: Hat Inspo #1

A sell-out style over the Southern Hemisphere summer, we’re stoked to announce we have launched our GIGI style to our northern counterparts, just in time for the Kentucky Derby on 6 May 2017.

Adorned with a crafted feather spray and available in a range of colours, this is a punchy, modern-style designer headpiece that is guaranteed to turn heads on course at Churchill Downs.

Pictured below is SHOW PONY Millinery friend & favourite Wilhelmina Shrimpton, who teamed a custom red GIGI with ASOS dress when she reported on Newshub’s 6pm news live from Ellerslie Racecourse in New Zealand.

We have just released a replica of Wilhelmina’s headpiece but get in quick, there’s just the one like her and it’s unlikely we’ll produce another exact replica prior to the Kentucky Derby.

View & purchase from a range of other GIGIs in our online boutique.

If you’re looking for a headpiece to wear in the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot and like our GIGI styles, you’ll be pleased to know that with a 14cm diameter base, they meet the requirements for headpieces that are can be worn in that area.
