I have been passionate about hats since I first attended the Diane Longines Racing event in 2013. Coming from the world of trading and financial markets, I was so fascinated by this spectacular universe, that I have been learning the art of hat making for the past 10 years. 


I have learnt millinery with the best artisans from France, England and Australia and had a chance to put my knowledge into practice while working on a defile collection for Lanvin and creating bespoke pieces for weddings and special events.


Through time I realized that although these exquisite pieces were still worn for special occasions, less and less women were wearing hats on a daily basis. Moreover, I couldn’t find any beautiful, high quality hats that I would personally love to wear on the ready-to-wear market. So it was time for me to give back to this great accessory  the place it deserves in our wardrobes. And this is how DILARA LATROUS headwear brand was born.




In a world marked by constant flux and uncertainty, I stand firm in my commitment to timeless values of beauty, elegance, and refinement.

I design hats inspired by timeless fashion trends—pieces that seamlessly blend with your everyday attire yet gracefully enhance your formal ensembles.

In a world clamoring for attention, I advocate for the strength of subtle elegance and understated confidence. There's no need to shout your identity; your mere presence can convey volumes with a quiet whisper.

Through my hats, I seek to manifest my vision and empower women to effortlessly exude elegance on any occasion.




At the heart of my collection lies the idea of timeless elegance, akin to the classic little black dress. These hats are meticulously crafted to refine any ensemble with ease, offering sophistication precisely when it's needed.

More than mere sun protection, they serve as stylish statements, reflecting your individuality and aspirations. As women, our lives are filled with endless tasks and responsibilities, leaving little time for ourselves. That's why I've created hats that effortlessly elevate your look, saving you the hassle of overthinking while ensuring you always appear impeccably chic.

So, slip on your DL hat and stride confidently toward your dreams, knowing that you exude grace and style every step of the way.



I strongly believe that if we love ourselves enough to only accept the best in everything we consume, we will make this world a better place. We will no longer buy the “not bad” and “why not”. We will only have what reflects who we are today and  what brings us closer to who we want to become in the future.


I create hats that you will LOVE. I carefully choose straws that will be used in my collection, opting for intricate colors and weaves that make our hats look different but never too much.


All our hats are entirely made in our Parisian atelier.


We lovingly hand-shape them on wooden blocks to preserve the natural aspect and texture of each straw.


We add an haute couture gros-grain ribbon inside for your ultimate comfort.


And we trim our hats with luxurious French silks and fine details: on top of looking good on your head I want these hats to be a beautiful object on their own, that you will take pleasure to touch, possess and contemplate.


We combine the fundamental techniques of male and female hatmaking.​

​Dozens of hours of work in our Parisian workshop are necessary to design a perfect new shape, find the association of textures and colors, take into account all the technical nuances of hat creation.


For our creations we only use high quality materials.


It is with great care that we select our felts produced manually in Europe. Our silks with deep and nuanced colors are made in France.

Swarovski crystals known for their unparalleled brilliance are used in the decoration of our Headpieces.
