This Thursday SF Weekly will be hosting Artopia, an art show at Project One featuring the 10 finalists in our annual Masterminds contest. That night, we'll award $2,500 grants to three lucky artists. In the meantime, we'll be previewing the works of the works of the finalists here on All Shook Down.

Jasmin Zorlu's hats are famous: Erykah Badu has three.

Using fur felt and -- seriously -- fish leather, Zorlu makes hats that recall flappers, freedom fighters, and femmes fatales. Convertible cloches, military caps infested with bows, and her signature Molecular Mermaid Helmet come from a broad background in clothing design, and a special interest in your head.

Zorlu is very much an artist with a specific vision, and we're excited she calls San Francisco home. Talent, skill, energy, and hard work mean this independent-minded milliner has a strong future in the fashion world.
