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.

Celebrity Clientele

Taylor Swift,Jessica Biel, Britney Spears, Clare Danes, Audrey Tautou, Debrah Messing, David Shwimmer, Reuben Santiago Hudson, Jenny Slate, and Aaron Neville.

Attended: Create Your Own Hand Made Fascinator


I got the opportunity to work on fascinator with Lisa on a short course. She giving me the opportunity to learn so quickly the basis of fascinator construction with mesh fabric. Lisa is good on listening your own style or desire which is a good point to get a hat that looks like you and nobody else. She also gave me good addresses for hat suppliers . I recommend warmly anybody who wants to dive into a first experience of hat making. It was a blast !
