The Fedora style hat is often mistakenly thought of as masculine hat. Knowing the history of the Fedora casts that assertion aside. The Fedora first appeared in 1891 in a play “Fedora” and written for Sarah Bernhardt. She was One of the great actors and performers of her time. A multi talented and beautiful woman. She was also a know cross dresser and during the play wore a new styled hat called the Fedora. It was different to the popular “Homburg” style fashionably worn by most men at the time. The Fedora style became a symbolic hat for the women’s rights movement of the time. It was not until early in the 20th century that men started wearing the Fedora style (as opposed to the Homburg style of hat). Therein lies the irony. The Fedora is seen as originally a “male” hat but in fact it was arguably first designed for a woman.
Today there is no question a Fedora style hat suits both woman and men, it is such a classic shape and design.
