Enjoy fellowship with other Miss Fisher 2022 attendees, wander the historic Churchill Downs setting of the Kentucky Derby and it's museum exhibits. Sample assorted hors d'oeuvres and indulge in a mint julep or other signature Derby / Phryne cocktails at a cash bar.
Acota is also pleased to announce that Jenny Pfanenstiel (Fan-in-steel) of Forme Millinery will be giving a presentation. She's an official Kentucky Derby Milliner !
Ms. Pfanenstiel will talk about the millinery industry, how she got started and how hats are made. She will also add hat knowledge from the 1920’s and bring raw materials, hat blocks, straw, a braid machine from the 1800’s, etc., to better explain the making of each hat. It is roughly 30-45 minutes (edited)
Coincidentally, she and her husband own a hat box company, www.hatboxesusa.com , that has supplied hat boxes to the Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries television show
