The show is a celebration of the African-American woman and how her headpieces have developed and the way she presents them at church.

I love hats. I always have. I wear them myself.

Everyone has tried on quite a number of hats to winnow down to what looks good for the actress and works for her character, ... You can tell that some actresses have worn hats a great deal. I have a good time watching them work a hat.

We had to find a way to make them work aesthetically and practically. I could tell which of the actresses had worn hats before, because as soon as they put them on, they started working them. Working it is part of wearing the hat.
