The DESIGNER section is devoted to those true hat artists
who had plenty of "MUCHNESS" and haven't LOST any of it,

"Perhaps people have realized the long life of hats. It's not necessarily a trend-led, seasonal acquisition -- it's an original piece that someone can buy and wear forever, which becomes part of their identity."

-- Dolly Jones, the online Editor of British Vogue, explaining in The NY Times why super imaginative designer hats have recently become so popular.
