A Millinery Moment with Christine Moore

Moore’s innovative designs have graced the heads of celebrities, public officials, and scores of high-end horse racing fans


Published:

The work of milliner Christine Moore is well-known around the racetrack. Her innovative designs have graced the heads of celebrities, public officials, and scores of high-end horse racing fans. Her creations are in the Kentucky Derby Museum, NBC called her “the milliner to the Triple Crown,” and she even worked with Mattel and Churchill Downs to design the official Barbie derby hat. Now, Moore is the official milliner for the Breeders’ Cup.

“If there’s a reason to wear a hat, usually I’ve found out how to get in the center of it,” Moore says.

The Breeders’ Cup is making its Del Mar Racetrack debut, but Moore has been immersed in the West Coast atmosphere for years. Opening day at Del Mar is one of the top events for racing in America, as well as for fashion.

“The thing about hats is, it’s really about where to wear them,” Moore says.

In this Breeders’ Cup collection, she combines classic international racing style—“fascinators and fedoras,” in her words—with the “sexy elegance of Del Mar.” She's also inspired by the beach, the track, and San Diego County’s unique culture. Each hat in Moore’s collection is made from scratch, including bows, trims, and other accoutrements. She also creates custom pieces, which can be matched to the colors of the wearer’s favorite horse’s silks.

“The sky’s the limit,” she says.

Find Moore’s hats in the Silks gift shop at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Fairmont Grand Del Mar and L’Auberge Del Mar hotels, Matti D Boutique in Del Mar, and at Sheridan boutique at Rancho Valencia. Also, keep an eye out for trunk shows and pop-up boutiques.
