Luke Song’s Detroit millinery was frequented by the late great Aretha Franklin. Franklin wore her much-discussed Mr. Song hat for her performance at President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration. Mr. Song Millinery has been in business since 1982, making hats for church, the Kentucky Derby, Ascot, and other special occasions. Hats by Mr. Song Millinery are also on display at the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, several African-American Museums, and the Smithsonian. “So consider yourself a part of history if you decide to wear one." – Pamela Thomas-Graham, “The Best Makers of Couture Millinery in the World”, 8/13/2019.
