Ashley’s Adventures: Finding the perfect Azalea Festival hat
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — If you’re going to the 2017 Azalea Festival, you’ll need to find the perfect garden party hat.
Jan Wutkowski, a local milliner, knows exactly what you need to look for.
While the big brimmed hats are always popular, she says more people are turning towards the not so traditional hat.
“They are things that are smaller usually,” she said. “But have a lot of abstract lines and wonderful color combinations.”
Filled with hats of all sizes, her showroom, Amuse Artisanal Finery, features dozens of hats.
“Some people will say you’ll run out of ideas,” she said. “Absolutely never. And I never recreate a hat.”
While all of her hats are one of a kind, she will also work with you to create the perfect hat for any occasion.
