Orlando Palacios is a heralded and creative artist based in New York City.
Orlando has spent the past 20 years designing and manufacturing the finest handcrafted hats for fashion designers, celebrities, Broadway shows and stylish people from around the world.
As the owner and head designer of the venerable New York haberdashery, Worth and Worth, he has grown to be the go-to lid-crafter for musicians ranging from Keith Richards to Elvis Costello and Beyoncé.
He often collaborates with fashion designers such as John Varvatos, Thom Browne, Robert Geller and Diane Von Fürstenberg for their runway presentations.
His passion for the craft enables him to keep the art of hat-making alive by using the same centuries-old techniques while the innovation and style of his designs remains unchallenged.
