Derby fashion sense in SoIn
We know style in Southern Indiana. But you already knew that, right? Sure, The Kentucky Derby takes place across the river, but you can find the latest fashion trends right here, as you’ll read about inside these pages in our Derby fashion issue. Jason Thomas, Editor Southern Indiana even has its own milliner, who has big-name and loyal clients on both sides of the river. Louisville who? You’ll see local shops like Dress and Dwell and Colokial, both in downtown New Albany, mentioned on social media in the same breath as trendy stores in Louisville. And if you’re on a budget, consignment shops like Annie’s Corner on Spring Street in downtown Jeffersonville offers
pretty dresses and accessories at a fraction of the cost. Which got me thinking: what about us guys? A few hat shops operate in Louisville, including Paul’s Hat Works in Butchertown. And there are a few men’s clothing stores, like The Leading Man downtown. But what about Southern Indiana? We have cigar bars which ooze masculinity. Three, to be exact, in Floyds Knobs, Jeffersonville and New Albany. You’ll find a tailor here and there. Where’s our haberdashery? Maybe that’s for another issue. But the Derby and the Oaks will be here before you know it. So check out some local trends, without even having to cross the river. Local style is SoIn. Time to dust off the fedora. — Jason Thomas is the editor of SoIn. He can be reached by phone at 812-206-2127 or email at jason. firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter: @ScoopThomas.

ritni Knable found her career staring at her through the glass of a storefront on one of the most famous streets in the country. “I always knew I wanted to be a fashion designer and when I got to school, that’s what I was determined to be ...” Knable said. “But whenever I got to college, I realized there’s a lot of different areas you can go in.” Walking down the streets of Michigan Avenue in Chicago looking for a job, Knable wandered into a millinery, or hat store, applied and landed a position. “And then I fell in love with making hats,” Knable, a 29-year-old Floyds Knobs resident, said. That passion eventually blossomed into the founding of Knable’s own millinery in 2003, called Headcandi, a nod to her sugary and bold-style hats. Headquartered at Dress and Dwell boutique in downtown New Albany, Knable’s business is busiest during Derby season. It was in Chicago, not far from where Knable gazed through the glass on Michigan Avenue, where she found the answer she was looking for. Knable studied millinery at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago while learning from milliner Linda Campisano at work. “Every time I’m in my zone, I know it’s where I’m supposed to be,” she said. “I love working with colors, with people and just creating fabulous things to wear.” Her millinery took her to New York City to work with Tracy Watts, another renowned milliner, but Knable just couldn’t stay away from her Southern Indiana roots — especially during Derby season. “And so I would fly home on the weekends during March, April and May to design all my parents’ friends’ hats ... and people would call me [to make hats],” she said. Eventually, she bought a one-way ticket. In 2005, Knable moved back to Floyds Knobs to grow Headcandi as a full-time business. “I always loved colors,” Knable said. “Every time people walk into my studio they’re always like, ‘Oh, it’s like a candy store in here. It’s so much fun, all these colors.’” Since then, Headcandi has made its way into 12 stores across Louisville, Lexington, Nashville and of course, Indiana, its home base in New Albany’s Dress and Dwell boutique.

Dressing the part for Derby Make your look pop with the latest trends DRESS AND DWELL
For the Southern belles of Southern Indiana, a complete Derby look can be found at Dress and Dwell on Spring Street in New Albany. Owner Amanda Gibson said the biggest trends this year are neon colors, florals and black and white dresses. “I would say our approach is very feminine, very girly,” Gibson said. Standout ensembles include a “chic, simple” white dress with a splash of black color at the waist, and a white dress with varying shades of neon green details complete with black trim at the neck and arms.
Dress and Dwell also has accessories to complete a look — from fascinators to jewelry and handbags to shoes. “We find that for Derby, statement necklaces are more popular than the simple and subtle,” Gibson said. She recommends Lulubelles necklaces, with bold colorful jewels and oversized pendants. “I would say all of their pieces are very feminine,” she said. For those wanting wristwear, Dress and Dwell sells the nationally popular Bourbon and Boweties bracelets — big gemstones intertwined in gold wire.

“Transcendence” April 18
frontier comes to town Event held at Historic Tunnel Mill
he Indiana Frontier Experience will take place at the Historic John Work House, Mill site, and surrounding property in Charlestown on April 26 and 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Indiana Frontier Experience is an immersive living history event focused around the early 19th century in the frontier territory that would become Indiana. Prior to statehood in 1816, Indiana Territory was a place where settlers could start a new life and was home to a wide array of wealthy entrepreneurs, farmers, frontiersmen, ruffians and indigenous people. This event shows a glimpse of that incredible and rich past. Take a free tour of the 200-year-old National Register of Historic Places listed Historic John Work House and enjoy conversing with local historical figures of the past, including Jonathan Jennings, the first governor of Indiana. Explore trails and learn about the trades
and skills of the early 19th century in America. Costumed re-enactors will be on hand to interpret life in those times. Be sure to see an early American boxing match, live historical music and a recreated War of 1812 militia unit as they muster for duty. Visit with frontier settlers as they carve a home in the wilderness, splitting fence rails, cooking and more. Learn more about what people wore in the Indiana Territory 200 years ago by attending a presentation of historical fashion in America. There is no admission charge; however, parking is $10 per car. All the proceeds go toward the restoration and preservation of this incredible historic site. Historic Tunnel Mill and the Historic John Work House are located at 3709 Tunnel Mill Road, Charlestown. Find them on Facebook under Historic Tunnel Mill for more information, or go to www. historictunnelmill.org

soin PLAYLIST Q&A interview WITh
JOSH AND HOLLY Names: Josh Glauber, Louisville, and Holly Jackson, Starlight (aka, Josh and Holly) Background: We met days before an audition was held for a reality TV singing show in Nashville. We paired up very spontaneously and went on to compete as finalists on CMT’s “Can You Duet Season 2” show. Since then, we've played nearly 700 shows together in the past five years. In those five years we’ve headlined, been openers for national acts, performed at large festivals, traveled, signed a deal in Nashville, released our first album, and had some radio play. We’ve been blessed. How did you get into music? Josh and I were both raised in very musical families, and were both singing and performing at an early age. Josh had been performing solo shows in the Louisville area for almost 13 years prior to our pairing. I had been actively traveling to
Upcoming gigs: May 3: Blue (Marriott) Derby evening May 17: Huber's Winery Nashville on the weekends for several years, singing and recording and trying to get noticed before I met Josh. What are your goals? Josh and I have similar goals. We both want to continue our songwriting and performing, as well as our efforts in worship and praise. We both have been led to Christian music over the last few years, and have aspirations of continuing the journey and putting more focus there.
Describe your sound/inspiration: Our style is vintage. I suppose we could be classified as country/folk. Most of our set includes songs from past eras, like the 70s in addition to many of our own originals. Josh was primarily influenced by the likes of James Taylor, and you can hear it when he plays. I was influenced by country music growing up. Martina McBride, Faith Hill. We perform primarily as a duo, but have multiple band mates that contribute when we book larger shows. We’ve been blessed to work with so much Louisville talent. What do you make of the local music scene? We’re proud of the local music scene. Louisville and Southern Indiana supports live music, more so than other places we’ve traveled. The amount of talent we have in a city our size is astonishing. When asked where we’re from, we’ve never made light of the fact that we are from the Louisville/Southern Indiana area.

HATS: Headcandi customer says milliner's work is 'artistry'
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 It can take a few hours for Knable to sew one hat, and custom-order turnarounds are about a week and a half to two weeks. Around Derby season, her hands are flying at record speed — she’ll sew hundreds in the two weeks leading up to the races. “There’s been years where a last hat delivery is at 4 a.m. on Derby morning to hotels because people figure out at the last minute that they’re going,” Knable said. Needless to say, sleep slides down to fourth or fifth priority. “Coffee and green tea are my favorite two things,” she said. But all those caffeine-fueled nights and frantic stitching have paid off. Knable has sold hats to everyone from local newscasters to country singer Luke Bryan’s wife, Caroline. Seeing her hats on heads makes it all worth it. “With all the press and social media and everything too, it’s a lot of fun because people will tend to say, ‘Hey I saw your hat here!’ she said. “I love going to Derby for the fact of seeing people in their whole outfit [with their hats].” Working with colors and customers alike is why Knable loves being a milliner. “It’s everything I’ve dreamed of doing,” she said.
A four-year-running customer of Headcandi, Laura Seigel, said every fascinator she’s worn since she moved to Louisville from New Orleans “could not look more different.” “I’ve always gone fascinator, because I was new to town and [Knable said] I don’t want to be bonking into people,” Seigel said. “And she was right. So I’ve always stuck with a fascinator.” Although she is still waiting for this year’s fascinator to arrive, she knows it will be fucshia with giant leaves to accent her graphic black and white dress. “I tell her just an idea of what I want and the color of my dress, and I totally trust her to go with the details,” Seigel said. “And she just is brilliant. I’m always just amazed at what she can pull together. It’s artistry. It’s true talent.”

DRESS: Area consignment shop owners discuss Derby trends CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 They even have something for the guys. Collared Greens ties come in many colors and can match dates’ dresses. Gibson said that Dress and Dwell draws in people from Louisville and Southern Indiana. “Our local customers support us but we also have customers that come over from the other side [of the river] to shop with us too,” she said. Online: dressand dwell.com
Right next door — but pulling in themes from across the globe — is another boutique called Colokial, the Spanish word for “local” or “at home.” Manager Marie O’Neil said that the Derby trends in her shop are bright colors such as red and teal, geometric patterns and floral prints. “It’s kind of like a local
access to international fashion,” O’Neil said. One of Colokial’s most significant brand names is Desigual, an exclusive designer company from Barcelona. Her favorite dresses to flaunt at Churchill Downs this year are a black shift dress with geometric shapes of green and magenta, and a white dress with giant black circular designs with a wide black hem. O’Neil suggests pairing simple bracelets with statement dresses, such as Philadelphia-based John Wind’s chunky plastic bangles with metal horse pendants. “He does a lot of very classic cuffs,” she said. “It’s very perfect for Derby.” Colokial also has the ideal accessories for Derby, many of them made from natural and international products. Hats made of dyed sinamay — or banana fiber — can add an earthy yet highfashion flair. Jewelry made from tagua, which is a nut from Colombia and Ecuador, are bold versatile pieces that O’Neil recommends for Derby. “These are just great for pulling out the colors in the dress,” she said.
