Dori Fitzpatrick, designer/owner, Hunky Dori Boutique, Saratoga Springs, NY, has received word from Leigh Leverett, stylist for The Vampire Diaries, that her charcoal heather grey Crocheted Brimmed Hat will be worn by the show’s heroine Elena Gilbert on Season 4, Episode 13.

Online PR News – 18-December-2012 – Saratoga Springs, New York – Dori Fitzpatrick, designer/owner, Hunky Dori Boutique, Saratoga Springs, New York, has received word from Leigh Leverett, the stylist at The Vampire Diaries, that her charcoal heather grey “Crocheted Brimmed Hat” will be worn by the show’s heroine and main character, Elena Gilbert on Season 4, Episode 13. See Elena wearing Hunky Dori's "Crocheted Brimmed Hat" here: http://bit.ly/TiJQAv.

Leverett received Hunky Dori’s "Crocheted Brimmed Hat" as part of a stylist gift bag initiative coordinated by art promotions and celebrity gifting company The Artisan Group (http://www.theartisangroup.org), of which Fitzpatrick is a member. Valerie Guerrero, founder of The Artisan Group, sent the gift bag in early November. It included jewelry and accessories from 80 of the Group’s 600 plus members. To date, Leverett has chosen 14 items for possible use in Season 4.

“I wanted to create a versatile, on-trend hat for Elena or one of the other female characters; something different than the typical beanie style and that would work with The Vampire Diaries clothing style,” said Fitzpatrick. “With a chic brim and platinum-colored pattern buttons the hat is fresh, hip and stylish. I can easily see a younger girl wearing it with high boots, jeans and a button down coat for a casual day, or paired with a dress and denim jacket for a date night. It would also be super cute for a Mom running errands.”

Fitzpatrick spent many hours designing, styling and crocheting the hat and is pleased her hard work paid off. "I think Elena will look beautiful in this hat," she said. "I can't wait to see her wearing it."

Fitzpatrick is now pulling together an entire Vampire Diaries accessories collection. In will include the “Crocheted Brimmed Hat” in color ways charcoal, green, black and cream (with wood buttons) along with boot cuffs, a scarf and possibly finger-less gloves. The pieces will be available on the company’s Etsy shop http://www.hunkydoriboutique.etsy.com. Updates will be available at http://www.facebook.com/hunkydoriboutique.

Hunky Dori Boutique specializes in fashionable hats and accessories for children and adults. As a designer, Fitzpatrick is focused on translating current trends into up-to-the-minute hats and accessories and is guided by color combinations that catch her eye, as well as the detailing of flowers and stripes.

Fitzpatrick runs a very hands-on business and single handedly manages all aspects from concept through production to bookkeeping. She is a graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology and prior to becoming a successful Momtrepreneur, spent 15 years in the fashion/interior design industry in New York City and The Hamptons.

“My designs are fashion forward, even for the little ones, and incorporate beautiful, high quality fibers plus labor intensive elements like hand-sewn felt applique and embroidery,” noted Fitzpatrick. “I do all the work myself and enjoy the challenge of designing for a range of ages. I also love doing custom work, like the Union Jack hat I recently completed.”

Hunky Dori Boutique hats are in the hands of Bethenny Frankel, Denise Richards and Allison Sweeney. Most recently Fitzpatrick submitted a pair of finger-less gloves to the stylist of HBO’s “True Blood” and is now waiting to hear if they will be used.
