For Alessandra Rivera, an outfit isn't complete without a make-you-stop-and-stare kind of hat. 

Take a look at her website, and you'll find a woman with golden-glossed eyelids sitting with a large brim hat and nothing else. In a way, her look is complete, even without a top. Rivera's hats are stand-alone pieces that celebs like Uma Thurman take on their international getaways. 

"I get to use my hands everyday and the options are limitless. It's a sculptural process that evolves from piece to piece," she told E! News. "I'm always working on something creative and different."

For most, starting a creative business in NYC sounds like a risk. But, it has paid off for this designer. Keep scrolling to learn how she found her success!
