I don’t wear hats very often, but when I do I want something that is unique.  I can always count on Tony to create something for me that will match my outfit and define me as the person that I am.  Thank you Tony for your wonderful creations.

Wearing a hat is something I didn’t do.  My head was too little for my body, I wear glasses and I have an abundance of hair on my head.  But since I have been acquainted with Tony and his designer’s touch, I just figured he had “the right hat for me!”  He did! I wore my first hat at the “Hats Off Luncheon” sponsored by Stoner Memorial Church and was an “Instant success!”  My dress was the perfect match for the colors in the hat and people greeted me and wanted to know who made the hat?  So of course I told them Tony Wilson and gave them all his information.

Tony designed a fascinator for me to wear to a brunch at Churchill Downs. He met me and took a picture of the outfit that I was going to wear. Then he designed the fascinator to coordinate my outfit. My fascinator was the talk of the Brunch at Church Downs 2011!! People could not believe it had been designed and created from a local entrepreneur.  Since that time I have purchased 4 more fascinators as gifts and all recipients were thrilled! If you are looking for that special hat or fascinator, I strongly recommend DesignsbyTony!!

Tony is a very creative artist.   His hats are beautiful!!!   He can design a hat to match any outfit.  His goal is complete satisfaction, and I am very satisfied with the hat he created for me for the Kentucky Derby.

Tony did a fabulous job creating a unique “gold” hat for me that perfectly matched a purple coat style dress with military style gold trim. He guided my selection of hat style and he was so “right”.  Plus the huge purple bow matched the purple in my dress and purples are difficult. He included a great hat pin as an added touch . I received many compliments when I wore my unique creation to the races.   He hats are  very  reasonably priced for his unique  creative style.   I will definitely ask him to create a signature look for me again.

Tony has a true God given talent! His mixing of colors and attention to detail makes each hat a one of a kind masterpiece. His hat is the final accessory that makes my outfit complete.
