Irina Dratva is a freelance accessories designer and patternmaker, whose clients include Coach, Still life NYC, and Marc Jacobs, among others. Last summer’s Reed Krakoff pilot collection showcased her hand-draped headbands and hats.

Irina’s passion for hats started with her first trip to London in 1994: inspired by Top Shop, upon return she made hats for the artists friends. Soon she became famous in her native Ukraine for her casual, understated creations. Innovative and resourceful, she was working with vintage and recycling materials producing original collections and fashion performances.

It was that experience that made her perfect for the job at Eugenia Kim Hats, where, starting in 2003, she was working on woven hats and headbands. There Irina created a lot of unique pieces for celebrity clients and runway collaborations, as well as many best-selling styles that one could now find in stores like Barney’s and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Currently residing in Hoboken Irina is working on DIY hat book. She is looking forward to work with a vibrant community of like-minded people and share the tricks of her trade.
