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.

Ruby3 2014 Spring Collection: Kentucky Derby

I am overjoyed to announce that I will debut my first hat collection in over three years this spring- please note that we have rescheduled the event from April 3rd to April 10th, 2014 from 6-9pm - at June. I will be joined by Shayne Barsness of Shayne & Coco for a delightful trunk show that evening. My inspiration for this collection is the Kentucky Derby, so it is only natural that we would collaborate with the fabulous Boss Ladies of Chowgirls Killer Catering for an additional event on May 3rd- a Kentucky Derby Party in their Parlor in Northeast Minneapolis, complete with a *Best Hat* contest, of course.
