Derby City Couture Team

Derby City Couture consists of Louisville, KY mother/daughter team, Eddie Ford and Rachel Ford. They’ve been in retail sales for over 10 years. Eddie’s background and passion in sewing and crafts goes back to her childhood on a tobacco farm in Columbia, KY, making clothes for her five younger siblings. Today, Eddie is widely known for making something beautiful out of almost anything, whether it’s clothing, handbags, home accessories or even furniture. She’s made pageant costumes, clothing and custom hats for her daughter, Rachel for years, and her talents have even received recognition internationally. Eddie’s ready to share her gifts and time with you with an amazing custom designed hat or fascinator.

Rachel was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. Serving as a former Mrs. Kentucky and being experienced in the pageant and entertainment industry have taught her not only the importance of knowing the latest fashion trends, but more important, giving priority to wearing what looks good and enhances the physical features of the individual. Rachel has three degrees from the University of Louisville and is a leader in her community. A well-rounded young lady, she also pursued a career in Christian music, was awarded a recording contract and her album sold across the country. She is excited to be working with her very best friend, her “Momma Ford,” making women look and feel beautiful.
