Every True New Yorker Wears Hats by Teressa Foglia

Shop Ladies and Gents Teressa Foglia Hats Fernanda Paronetto

A true New Yorker loves hats, but not any type of hat! It has to be stylish, extremely well made and, preferably, custom made! Teressa Foglia’s atelier in Industry City is the perfect place to find them and later show them off around the streets of New York!

I always say that one of the best ways to identify the true New Yorkers around the city is to look for people that are wearing hats! New Yorkers love hats and are pretty stylish and bold regarding how to use it and how to incorporate them into their daily lives.

I’ve been accompanying the work of a fantastic hat designer and maker called Teressa Foglia. As she explains it, she’s a modern milliner – “a person who designs, makes, sells or trims hats primarily for a female clientele”.

In December of 2017, Teressa opened the first “Teressa Foglia Hat Studio + Shop” in Industry City – one of Brooklyn’s upcoming neighborhoods. There, you’re able to shop her fantastic collections, meet for your custom hat fitting, and even join them for a hat making workshop.

And still, if you’re a business, it’s a great space to host an event and even feature your independent brand products.

Well, I was pretty curious to learn more about how it all started, where her passion came from, what types of hats she sells, which are the best sellers, how they are actually done and also, I wanted to see if I’d find the perfect one for me! “Spoiler alert”, I did! Wuhu!

Teressa told me that she has always loved hats and wore them from a very young age, but started wearing them more frequently as an adult.

She had an episode in her life of a heartbreak so, back then, decided to change scenes a bit and bought a one-way plane ticket to Europe.

Destiny ended up taking her to the South of France, where she booked a last minute millinery course. She barely made it to actually booking and being part of what would change her life.

This course took her to London, to make hats with a renowned milliner and eventually ended up in other cities like Berlin and Los Angeles, always designing and making hats.

She travelled the world to over 35 countries collecting ideas, inspirations and life experiences that would all be used in the near future and finally make sense all together.

“Life is colorful, boundary less and filled with moments encapsulated by, “you had to be there to believe it”. So, be there. Buy the plane ticket. Break the rules. Life is your own masterpiece; a canvas that spans the globe. After all, nothing fun happens while drawing inside the lines.”

So, life ended up bringing her back to New York and it was when she actually launched her 1st collection.

Today, her hats are mostly one-of-a-kind. She customizes according to her client’s desires and style, making sure each and every single person leaves her atelier completely satisfied and counting the minutes to wear their new hat! She creates has for men, women, kids & babies, custom and ready to wear!

If you have no idea on what hat you want, Teressa can guide you through the process, starting very simply by deciding what material you want: felt or straw? Remember: straws have infinite options!

Now, a tip to the Coachella girls out there: Teressa is the creative mind and hands behind some of the coolest hats that you’ve seen at the festival. So, your search days for finding out where that cool NY gal got her hat are over!

Oh! And like I mentioned above, for the moms out there, she just recently launched her Kids & Babies Line! There is nothing more adorable than cute, stylish kids wearing hats, right?

So, be sure to swing by and take the day to explore all the other amazing businesses also located inside the buildings of Industry City. You’ll find everything from a sake on tap bar, chocolate stores, coffee shops, design shops, a great food hall and so much more!

“A hat allows you to make a statement without saying a word” – Ben Goorin

Goorin Bros hat shop has a fantastic story!

It all started waaaay back in 1895, with Cassel Goorin. He created custom-made hats off his horse cart in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Furthermore, several years later, in 1921, Cassel taught his two sons, Alfred and Ted, the art and business of his trade. When Alfred and Ted took over Cassel’s business, it became the Goorin Brothers.

Alfred and Ted knew about their father’s passion for outdoor activities and decided, in 1948, to create the Grenadier Catalog. In other words, it was a sporting line designed to accommodate the hunter, fisherman and camper alike.

In 1949, Alfred moved to San Francisco, expanding their business and their awareness. They also added hat-related accessories to their successful line of headwear. Unique items like gloves and mittens, socks, and other sportswear were created.

The successful story passed on through generations of the Goorin family. In 1991, Ben Goorin of the 4th generation, observed the cultural movement of the 90’s. He knew that the Goorin archives contained the hats that would make a great comeback.

Eventually, in 2012 Goorin Bros focused on bringing a personal level of genuine interaction back – hat shops and customers.

They wanted to make hat wearing relevant again.

Now, imagine a world with beautifully crafted hats once again reigning the street scene. How cool would that be!? Well, on our end, we’re huge supporters!

Plus, sometimes you can be lucky enough to see a rare solo set in their Williamsburg store!

Note! They to have hats for women too, so girls, go there have fun! If you have kinds, they have the trendiest options too.
