About Us

Started by award winning interior designer turned milliner, Kathey Schickli Hopkins, Hat Haven is a locally owned, 2nd generation, bespoke hat shop specializing in one of a kind headpieces. Kathey, and her daughter Jessica, are located in Louisville, Kentucky. They work together to create custom hats and fascinators for the Kentucky Derby, weddings, runway, and other events. 


Hat Haven will be hosting our annual pop up shop at the Hyatt Regency Louisville. Held the weekend of the Kentucky Derby, you can shop our large selection of ready to wear ladies’ hats, fascinators, men’s hats, and boutonnieres. Our design center will be open to add the perfect finishing touch to your hat. 


We are still accepting appointments for bespoke Kentucky Derby designs, or you may choose to have one of our ready to wear hats tailored just for you. For local clients, we recommend bringing your outfit to your design appointment. For our out of town clients, we are available via Skype, Duo, or Messenger. We would be happy to assist you during the selection and design process. We will also advise you on how to wear and care for your headpiece.


We are excited to announce that we are now making custom hat boxes!  Please contact us for more information and to start your design process!


Free local delivery or hotel drop off for out of town guests is available! Message us for details!
