Dayna Pinkham, Rosehaven PDX

Dayna Pinkham is a positive force within Portland’s maker community and is keeping often forgotten hat making techniques alive and well. In the 1980’s she began her millinery career in Seattle, where she apprenticed to the late John Eaton, venerable milliner and fashion designer. During four years with Eaton, she learned the time-honored methods of design conception: steaming and shaping felt, straw, and buckram over wood blocks; and finishing with fine hand stitching which she still carries on today. Currently she is renowned as one of the West Coast's top milliners, Dayna Pinkham's growing national and international clientele ranging between celebrities, politicians and everyday folk. Dayna Pinkham designs and constructs her exceptional hats in her downtown Portland design studio/boutique. The shop is a unique fixture within Portland, as it is the only operating millinery in the city. Her hats are frequently featured at fashion shows, fundraising auctions, and benefit events. Currently, Dayna is busy creating her own, original hat blocks with the aid of her new-found block makers, and is excited about the future, hoping to both explore environmental concerns and contribute to pushing the industry out of the past and into the future.
