Frank Olive had a wonderful career, selling scads of hats in Chicago. A friend recently acquired this vintage gem, soon to be available for sale and listed on Etsy’s FrouFrou4 YouYou.
This raises the question about milliners and special hats made for special clients. A “Private Collection” must exist from Chicago milliners as well. Do you have such hats in your collection? Please share some stories of these creations.
Just now I have one whimsy with felt elephants on it without a label that is the next great hat history challenge. But more of that in a later blog.
Happy Private Label Day in 2011!
