When a designer conceives of a new design for a hat, the idea becomes a reality by creating a model hat.
At Cynthia’s Centuries of Style, haute couture techniques are used, which includes hand blocking, hand draping and sewing as well as the use of the finest materials to achieve exquisitely styled hats.
Additional models may then be made with variations on themes from the original model.
Model hats are then shown to clients who wish to have a hat custom made. The model hat is a starting point and the client may request a variety of variations, such as a different brim size, crown depth, color, ornamentation, etc.
Extra model hats are sometimes made available for the clients of fine millinery shops and boutiques at a price less than the cost of a custom creation.
When you find a model hat in a color and style which suits you, you are in luck! As model hats are created with all the care which attends a custom hat, and are available for a lower price, you will find yourself the proud owner of a quality hat, designed to be the most luxurious item in a lady’s wardrobe.
Moreover, as all model hats created by Cynthia’s Centuries of Style contain an adjustable head size band, you can customize the fit to your head size as well as accommodate your various coiffures.
As a special surprise, many of the model hats are VersiStyleTM which means that they can provide you with more than one look by changing ornamentation, such as feathers, flowers and bows.
Each model hat is presented with its own hatbox, as this is the best way to protect your new treasure... and, of course, a lady carrying a hatbox is undeniably chic!
Best of all, a fine hat is like fine jewelry, not meant to be worn for just one season, but to provide many years of hat-wearing pleasure.
