Broadway hatmaker comes to Oak Cliff this week

Oak Cliff hat maker Cassie MacGregor this weekend hosts one of her “hat idols,” she says. It is theatrical milliner Cigmond Meachen, a Broadway hat maker for 30 years. Her work has appeared in Chaplin, Nice Work If You Can Get It, The Lion King and Phantom of the Opera, among others.

Cigmond, as she is known, has curated a selection for a three-day trunk show in Dallas.

“One of her hats is even on permanent display at La Musee du Chapeau in France,” says MacGregor, whose House of MacGregor is above Bolsa. “She only sells them in New York, which makes it more special that she is letting us have a few.”

Shop Cigmond and House of MacGregor from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14; 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15; and noon-5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, or by appointment,  214.942.1966.
