(WHAS11) - In six years of creating custom Derby hats, Vicky Hoskinson has never made two alike. She says now more than ever, ladies are turning to her to turn their old hats into new.
She says you can find cheap hats at discount stores like Steinmart and she can add some "flair" to make it look like a designer hat. Or, better yet, find your old Derby hat and make it look completely different. You can even swap hats with a friend to create a whole new look.
A big trend for this year's Derby: headpieces. You can put some "flair" on a barrette or a cheap headband and make a sassy headpiece without even buying a hat!
Vicky Hoskinson started "Piece by Piece Designs" to help fund her medical bills for her son, Jacob, who was diagnosed with autism. She says 100% of all the proceeds go to help her family with those medical costs. To find out more, visit her website: .
