Large international equestrian events have always attracted a distinguished and elegant public that appreciates and most of the time wears hats. Is for the first time in Romania when we have admired an exclusive hat show at Karpatia Horse Show, an equestrian competition that brings to life the aristocratic aura of Cantacuzino Domain around the “Little Trianon” palace from Floresti.
The 2019 Fall-Winter “Warriors” collection by DeCorina Hats has been launched on September 30th.
Corina Leca, the designer behind DeCorina Hats learnt the millinery art from famous designers from UK and Romania. After graduating London Fashion School, Corina decided to invest over 50k Euros in professional equipment, fabrics and materials for manufacturing hats.
DeCorina hats are handmade from natural materials of the highest quality, employing techniques unchanged for hundreds of years. Each hat carries forward the energy of its creator and offers the wearer a way to express one’s personality.
Running her own events company for 15 years helped Corina to understand how to create an experiential moment, how to transmit emotions through design.
Corina says hats are for authentic and when one is assuming the propud wearing of a hat, that someone has something to show and deserves to stand out.
The Fall-Winter collection is called “Warriors” and comprises felt hats in vibrant colours, unique shapes and accessories created to tell the story of the legendary warriors that inspired Corina to follow her dream.
The catwalk show was in fact a horseback show; the models – international equestrian champions that accepted to wear DeCorina hats whilst saluting the public from the saddle.
It is not buy chance that “Warriors” collection has been launched on horseback; Corina has a lifelong passion for horses.
Corina loves horses, practices show jumping and other equestrian sports and runs the HorseEye Leadership seminars for business people, seminars where the horses are the heavyweight professors teaching us how to reach out honestly and communicate clearly, with no prejudgement offering people autonomy, empowerment, trust and responsibility. r.
