Susannah Lipsey went small town,
Slowing down her vida,
Stuck some feathers on a band,
And called it Windy Freda.
That’s right. After a six-year stint in NYC — dabbling in everything from theater to music to fashion — she packed up and moved to Marfa, Texas, for a change of pace. Immediately inspired by the vibe and landscape, she began making headbands out of vintage hats, belts, and bras, adding feathers to them. Friends oohed and aahed, and Windy Freda was born.
Lace, flowers, fabric, and plumes are combined to create ethereal headpieces that look equally as stunning with a wedding dress as a T-shirt and jeans.
Each one is named after a Judee Sill or Jimmie Spheeris song, as that’s what Lipsey was listening to as she worked. The debut collection was influenced by 1940s movies, 1970s music, and Native America.
Making each one a little piece of history.
