2009 Hatty Awards Winners
Kat Toronto
Kat is a singer for the band Ragwater Revue and her stage persona is 1940’s noir femme fatale. Her foray into hat making started when she couldn’t find vintage 40’s tilt hats in the stores. Because of that she decided to make her own.

Much to her surprise, people began asking if they could buy the hats she created right off her head a concerts. The former textile and costume designer from San Francisco taught herself the art of millinery and it’s been a win-win ever since.

Kat had her first hat show in New York City and collaborated with Baron Hats to design a women’s hat collection for them. She has been incorporating whimsical nautical and ocean themed items on her hats including starfish, fish net, miniature wood sailing ships and seashells.
