A real craftswoman at work.

Rose Monzyk is a passionate artist with decades of experience as a seamstress, fine artist, and especially a hat-maker.

Old-world milliner techniques meet modern vibrancy.

Rose started with a hat block and some gumption. With research, time, trial (and sometimes error) she is now known for creating award-winning wearable pieces of art.

Ranging from dainty to daring, every piece has a unique style of its own. No factories, apprentices or short cuts here. Just wearable pieces of art, made only once.

Recognition & Awards

In the media

On May 2, 2017 Rose was featured on a local CBS affiliate's morning program, Great Day St. Louis. Check out the segment where she shows her Derby-inspired millenary leading up to the big race at Churchill Downs.

She can create something just for you.

Fabrics, colors and textures brought to life.

When Rose sits down to create, she often starts without a fully baked vision of the end-product. The materials inspire the work, and the piece appears from the elements in front of her.

Famous for her wax-resist, hand-dyed silks, mixed media fine art and her inventive use of materials in hat-making, Rose has cultivated a style that is unique to her.
