About Patty Gravatte
Multimedia artist, Patty Gravatte, established Gravatte Millinery in 2015 following a visit to Kentucky Derby 141. After embarking on the process of having a hat designed for the event, and following a lifelong love of hats, Patty’s passion for hats was reignited. Since that time, Patty has traveled France and Italy taking millinery classes from world class milliners, has explored multiple hat and flower making facilities, toured New York’s Garment District shops and the haberdasheries of Paris learning all aspects of the trade and process, collecting beautiful, fine quality materials along the way. Patty has worked as an apprentice with local milliners, practicing and perfecting her craft. What started as a hobby has turned into a successful small business. Patty says, “This medium allows me to use so many of my other artistic abilities, including color, texture, shape, beading and silk floral design, all in one place. It feels like the cumulation of years of artistry landing in the perfect format. I can use all those skills to make something beautiful which in turn brings out the beauty in the wearer. What a gift to be able to do this.” All Gravatte Millinery hats, headpieces and accessories are made by hand in Louisville, Kentucky following traditional millinery techniques including hand sculpting and sewing. Everything is made with high quality new and vintage millinery materials, sourced from around the world.
