Welcome to a very special episode of the Fashion Crimes Podcast, just in time for the 150th running of the Kentucky Derby! We're thrilled to introduce our guest, celebrated milliner Christine A. Moore, the creative force behind Christine A. Moore Millinery.


1. Meet Christine A. Moore


Christine A. Moore is not just a milliner; she's an artist whose canvas is the wide brim of a Derby hat. Based in New York, Christine's journey in millinery began with a background in theater costume design. This creative foundation paved the way for her unique approach to hat making, where each piece isn't just crafted; it’s curated.


2. From Theater to The Track


Christine's career transitioned from theater to fashion after moving from Pennsylvania to New York. Her entry into the world of high fashion hats began in regional theater, but it was her love for design that led her to millinery. Christine's brand has grown to be one of the most recognized names in designer hat companies in the United States. Her collaborations with Churchill Downs and fashion showcases at the Kentucky Derby have set a new standard in hat fashion.


3. The Hats: A Blend of Style and Artistry


In today’s episode, Christine shares insights into the design process and inspiration behind her famous Derby hats. Known for their vibrant colors, elegant feathers, and bespoke trims, each hat is a statement of personal style and craftsmanship. Highlights from her collection include the dramatic "Barbie Doll" inspired hat and several custom pieces adorned with unique feather arrangements and custom bows.


Christine’s designs not only complement the face but transform the wearer, accentuating their features and adding a touch of glamour.


4. Transformative Art


Christine Moore's hats are more than just accessories; they are pieces of art that frame the face, drawing attention to the wearer's eyes and enhancing their overall presence. As we discussed the role of hats in fashion and their power to transform, it became clear that Christine's work truly encapsulates the spirit of the Kentucky Derby - bold, beautiful, and timeless.


“Christine’s hats not only celebrate the tradition of the Derby but elevate it, making every race an opportunity to showcase personal style and elegance.”
