Your Hat's Desire.

Owner: Deborah Vick Address: 4710 Sam Peck Road, Little Rock, 72212, 224-7357 Start-up date: February

After 10 years in the corporate world, Deborah Vick has returned to her first love -- fashion design.

Before pursuing a career in business, Vick earned a bachelor's degree in fashion design from Madison College in Wisconsin.

She came to Arkansas from Connecticut a year ago to work for Acxiom Corp.

"I found that my life was going by me," she says. "I wanted to be able to enjoy life a little more, have a more flexible schedule and do more volunteer work."

In October, she left Acxiom to begin a new business.

Vick will be designing, making and selling hats.

She says she will be working with antique veiling, imported ribbons and unique feathers.

Her hats will "have a turn-of-the-century Parisian feel to them," Vick says.

They will range in price from $100 to $300.

Vick, who has a collection of hats she has made for herself, discovered there was a market for unique, finely made hats after reading a magazine article about successful hat designers.

In March, Vick plans to attend a series of workshops in Chicago to learn more about turn-of-the-century embellishments and ribbon treatments.
