Founded in 2003 by designer Britni Lynn Knable, hEADcANDi specializes in hand crafted fashion forward hats, fascinators, and accessories for Race Day and Wedding events. Our fine quality materials, both new and vintage, are sourced from all around the world to create fresh, contemporary and feminine designs. Building on inspiration from both classic vintage styles and current fashions, hEADcANDi is able to design pieces that have set us apart as the leading Milliner in the South!

Britni's love of fashion began as a child and continues today. She studied at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago where she landed a coveted position with Chicago milliner, Linda Campisano. There she quickly discovered that hats and bridal wear were her true passion. After college she headed to New York City, where she studied under world renowned milliner, Tracy Watts. With strong local roots, Britni returned to Louisville to design race day and wedding headwear.
