Anna Lee is a Saint Paul-based milliner and designer with a heart for community and a mind for industry development for independent fashion and the arts. Her hat making career started over 15 years ago when a dress she designed needed something extra. She founded Ruby3 in 2000 and proceeded to take on every creative project she could, including founding the rock-n-roll fashion show and design incubator Voltage: Fashion Amplified in 2004, and the fashion organization MNfashion in 2006.
She currently works in accessories product development for Target Corporation and is focusing on developing seasonal collections for Ruby3 and mentoring emerging designers.

Hello, friends! Thanks to the WCCO story this morning, I have had a few inquiries on where to buy my hats. I just finished a trunk show at the American Swedish Institute Museum Shop and have a few left, but am spending most of my time getting ready for an upcoming trunk show at June boutique on April 9th. I definitely take commissions, so feel free to check out my Instagram and send me an on your interest. I thrive on working directly with my customers to get them exactly what they are looking for!
