When you put on a hat, it gives you height, and it gives you power.
For us, church hats are not just hats. They are crowns.
and when a woman puts one on, she becomes a queen.

We've been making hats for more than 20 years.
A church hat is a very special hat. Especially in the African American community.
As a child growing up in the south, in the 60s, we always wore hats.
Sunday is the one day, historically, that we had a chance, and we step out in our Sunday best.
I don't believe that church hats are a thing of the past.
I have noticed that the younger generation is taking on the tradition of wearing hats.
It makes me happy to see a younger woman with a hat on her head
because I know that she's still carrying on the tradition.
I come from a long line of church hat wearing women. Everyone wore a hat.
It was a parade, it was colors, it was magic.
When you go to church and you step in, and you see all of your sisters wear hats on,
we all be eyeing each other and under our breaths saying, boy, that's a really gorgeous hat.
So it's wonderful to be in a room filled with women with hats on.
And each one of us look absolutely amazing in our own right.
