Recognized by New York Magazine as one of New York City's best shops for nine years in a row, this New York hat shop specializes in unique custom millinery & accessories.
My mission is ...
to create hats that are good looking, well designed and long-lasting. I feel that putting on the right hat is like putting on that special pair of well worn jeans-comfy, versatile and endlessly chic.
A great deal of energy and time goes into solving specific problems for my customers. The fit, feel and the number of ways a hat can be worn are all considerations in the design process. I hope you enjoy my hats and that they will inspire your creativity.
Since I was a girl I enjoyed making beautiful things.
After graduating from Mount Holyoke College with a degree in Fine Art, I studied Millinery with Ann Albrezio at New York City's Fashion Institute of Technology.
Soon after I completed my degree I found myself selling my handmade hats to such stores as Barney's, Henri Bendel, and Fred Segal. In 1998 I opened my self-named boutique, Lisa Shaub Fine Millinery, in Nolita, New York City.
I have designed hats for the theatre, for runway, and for an extensive array of demanding creative clientele.
The majority of my work is one of a kind but can be custom ordered in other colors and sizes. What I want is to create a hat that perfectly solves the problem. It could be to conceptualize a complicated hat for a Vogue photo shoot or to create a custom fascinator that is simple and elegant enough to be comfortably and happily worn by the Mother of the Bride.
I strive for excellence in fit and design, always remaining true to my inner voice.
I feel satisfied that my work is well executed and inspires others to take fashion risks. I get many of my ideas from my customers, who visit from all over the world to purchase my products. A typical client may be a school teacher, a costume designer for TV, a professional athlete, an architect, a writer, an artist or an accountant.
