Koos introduced her to Albertus Swanepoel who needed help finishing a small run of hats for Barney’s in 1999. This coincided with Ms. Scully loosing about 5 hats in one week that left her noggin a bit cold. With a new found skill she went about making stylish asymmetrical hats out of left over pieces of wool jersey and cashmere found on the floors of Koos’ studio. These designs warmed her head, and attracted the attention of The Hat Shop in Soho, NYC, Performance Artist Cynthia Hopkins who commissioned her to make a hat. Ms. Scully has been featured in The New York Times style section by Bill Cunningham, New York Magazine who nabbed her pic as a Reason to Love New York, and Japanese Vogue in her hats.
The hats are all 100% Italian Cashmere, no longer left overs sewn on her vintage Singer sewing machine, and finished by hand.
