Brooklyn-based milliner Tracy Watts creates unique, handmade designs for both men and women. Since her emergence in 1993, she has stayed true to the craft and the intricate details that set her hats apart from all the rest. Each finishing touch is done by hand and vintage machinery through artisinal methods. Showcasing both traditional cut-and-sew and hand-blocking methods, her hats are sought after around the world, from New York and Paris to Tokyo. As an artist and mould maker, it was inevitable that Tracy would find her niche in the sculptural world of hat design. She studied at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and under the tutelage Mme XXXX from Balenciaga, and found an outlet for the many ideas that have formed her collection of men's and women’s hats.
