GBK Celebrity Gifting Suite Oscars!

Who watched the Oscar’s this weekend? We love seeing so many talented individuals in  one place! Before the ceremonies started, we had the chance to attend the GBK Pre-Oscars Gifting Suite! We met a ton of new and interesting people there, and had the chance to reconnect with some of our old friends! This time, the event was held in a gorgeous Beverly Hills home!

While we were there, we got to check in with our friend Viola Davis. After the event, she went on to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in “Fences”! By winning this Oscar, she has become the 23rd member of the “Acting Triple Crown” club, by winning an Emmy, Tony, and an Oscar over the course of her career.


Every time we have the opportunity to attend one of these events, we’re reminded of why we do what we do! Sharing all the hat styles we’re so passionate about with people that have equal drive and creativity is an ultimately fulfilling experience. Here are some more of the hot celebrities we got to meet with!

Jamie Foxx



We have covered so many celebrity heads and Jamie Foxx was an amazing addition to our list. We met him at the GBK Gifting Suite: Oscars held at the London Hotel West Hollywood at Beverly Hills. It was a amazing having him walk down the wall with excitement and say “Ohh look at the hats!”

He came into our booth with his daughter, Annalise Bishop. Annalise fell in love with the Wisdom hat, designed by Adam Rose for American Hat Makers. Soon Jamie had a matching Wisdom hat on and he started flapping his arms like he was an owl. He was so thrilled and had a ginormous smile on his face.

Then he started trying on different hats and with each hat he portrayed a different personality and pose. We where so honored to witness his excitement for our hats. “What great product!, I love these hats!, their amazing!”.

The Wisdom Hat that Annalise took home and Jamie tried on is not just an Owl Hat. Designed by Adam Rose owner of Fallen Owl Tattoo Studio in Denver here is the story behind the “Wisdom” or as most call it the “Owl Hat”.

American Hat Makers continue to push creativity and design in the world of hat making. It’s a joint collaboration from their exceptional team to create/sew/assemble that has been etched by designer Adam Rose. The Team then cuts leather and sews into a top hat, then airbrushed on leather, laser engrave owl face, assembles eyes/eyelids and feathers to create a masterpiece called the “Wisdom” Owl Hat.

In 2015, American Hat Makers partnered with tattoo artist, Adam Rose. As artist and owner of Fallen Owl Tattoo Studio in Denver all hats in Adam Rose’s line are directly inspired by his tattoos and artwork. Public response to Rose’s initial release was immensely positive and we couldn’t be happier with the results. All hats in Adam’s line are 100% American made, hand painted, and laser etched with the highest quality materials available.

American Hat Makers agreed that for every owl hat sold ( ‘Wisdom’ ), $5.00 will be donated to a charity of Adam’s choice. Nature’s Educators has been another amazing charity cares for and educates the public with non releasable birds of prey. For Fallen Owl it was a perfect fit.

We where so happy to see Jamie and Annalise be so excited for our new Wisdom hat. For us it’s always exciting to see a hat lover be so excited about our hats, especially if it’s Jamie Fox.
