Custom hats get more artistic by the day but have you seen a hat that mimics watercolor? Ashley Botts Willis creates this unique style and more from her hat headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee.

It’s no surprise Ashley has put her signature on the hat world as a veteran of the fashion industry. From her website:

She was in the fashion industry in NYC for over ten years before relocating to Nashville to start her business…With her modern twist on classic styles, her work is inspired and influenced by her southern roots, big city style, and education in traditional millinery and hat making from the Fashion Institute of Technology.
