About

 Hi all, and thank you for your interest! 

I will be creating original fashion illustration works based on the stylish fashion of New Yorkers as they go about their days. 

I am a New York city based hat designer and fashion illustrator looking to raise capital to launch a ready-to-wear line of hats, re-do my website, and to invest in a few pieces of hat equipment that have been out of reach budget wise. The funds would also help in creating a stellar look book that I can submit to stores in aims of selling my ready-to-wear line of hats to a broader market.

I love fashion illustration and I character sketch the many interesting and stylish individuals I see around New York city daily. It provides much of the inspiration that goes into my work with hat making.

I hand make each piece and place the utmost importance on quality in craftsmanship. I presently create one of a kind hats for clients whose needs range from everyday/unique, tv/film/stage, bridal, Kentucky derby,  festivals, and much more. Each piece represents my desire to bring back a sense of uniqueness to individual style. 

With funds to make a collection of more readily accessible hats, I will be able to extend this vision, create more styles, and reach people looking for a quality headpiece that they identify with and will love for years to come.  I hope to inspire people to invest in clothing and accessories they love, and grow my brand to make that possible. 

More examples of my work may be seen on instagram under the handle @alessandra_rivera_hats  and please feel free to email with any questions, comments, feedback to info@alessandrarivera.com. Thank you for your time!
