Dress Derby patchwork

This signature Rosehip DRESS DERBY collection features one-of-a-kind textile art that is truly wearable, and sure to delight.   A selection of vintage Italian silk neckties are chosen for their fashionable colour and pattern qualities, then repurposed into patchwork. Trimmed with details such as silk-covered buttons, or with a zipper rosette and fabric leaves, adding a sweet touch of modern femininity. Finished with a silk tie pleated band.

With a roomy crown and short brim, it allows for a variety of hairstyles, collars, and scarves. The brim has sturdy and flexible nylon boning stitched into the bias edge, it can easily be shaped up, down, or wavy, and will retain the style. This feature allows for lots of options for framing the face and bringing light onto the eyes.
