Turban by Nina Rosenberg at Revelry Boutique Gallery
Yes, the Kentucky Derby may be the most exciting two minutes in sports, but the rest of the day is all about the fashion. From gingham to bowties, and cocktail-inspired confections that draw from that southern spirit that make the event just so grand, this sporting event’s legacy revolves largely around what you are actually wearing while placing your bets for the day.
With this in mind, I decided that I needed a way to stand out in a crowd of mint julep-infused Derby event-goers, and found what may just be my best accessory for the Derby season: a handcrafted turban by the uber talented Nina Rosenberg.
Rosenberg’s latest collection of one-of-a-kind Derby turbans are all crafted with carefully-placed silk flowers, vintage embellishments like this unique beetle broach, and a elevated sense of playfulness that is sure to turn more heads than any Derby hat ever could.
So, now that your derby turban is taken care of, all you have to worry about is what horse you will bet on for the big race. Don’t you local, Louisville style mavens just love this time of the year?
