Well-known milliner Amy Downs is foremost a hat enthusiast and is actually curious why one wouldn't wear a hat. She's confident she could make someone a convert just by having them try the right one on.

Last week, Downs traveled by train from New York City, where she resides, to Memphis, the second stop on her trunk show tour. Hosted by Bar DKDC, this special pop up shop was my first introduction to the esteemed Amy Downs collection. Thankfully, Downs' husband Gary Rudy was also there eager to entertain my 7-year-old with magic tricks while I perused the vast assortment of hats.

The wide range of hat styles confirmed her notion that one could really find that perfect hat and become a hat enthusiast just as she was. Festive straw hats topped the tables while winter hats reminiscent of many eras filled the racks.

Both men and women delight in her collection, not only to adorn their heads but to also boast that they own an Amy Downs original.

Currently, the only way purchase an Amy Downs hat is through her trunk show. Her next stop is Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday, November 23rd.
