Yestadt’s design philosophy starts with a dedication to technique and detailed processes using traditional hatting technique. With nods to vintage silhouettes coupled with current RTW trends, a Yestadt hat is easily worn and integrated into each customer’s closet.
Known for updated classic silhouettes and master craftsmanship, Yestadt hats are a favorite of womenswear designers. Her exclusive runway styles include collaborations with Marc Jacobs, The Row, Mara Hoffman, Public School and Creatures of the Wind to name a few.
Molly Yestadt was born in New York and raised with a deep appreciation for all aspects of design from those of great scale to the everyday object.
Most recently Yestadt was inducted into the prestigious CFDA Fashion Incubator class of 2018. In 2012 Yestadt was recognized as one of Forbes’ 30 under 30 stars in the field of Art and Design.
Reflecting Molly’s commitment to responsible, top-tier production, Yestadt’s hats are manufactured domestically, with the majority of finishing done in Yestadt Millinery’s downtown NYC studio.
All Yestadt hats are produced carefully, with attention to detail in New York and New Jersey. Our millinery production is craft oriented and practices are highly specialized to the category. This includes hand blocking and finishing techniques in the highest quality fur felts available.
