I remember loving watching movies from the 40s on TV as a youngster. I loved checking out the details of the fashions. The dresses…and the hats!
This designer didn’t have to look into the past for the idea. She was in fashion design school and drew them herself! She dropped out of school when the men went off to war. She kept her portfolio of designs, but life took her in a different direction. Then the daughter of a friend remembered seeing the portfolio and she asked permission to take them into work for her team to see. And where did she work? R-o-b-e-r-t K-a-u-f-m-a-n!!
