For centuries the hat has reflected the mood of its wearer and the spirit of its time. Hats are the crowning glory, the pinnacle, the grand finale of an outfit. Through history, when times were good, a joyous hat was a triumphant banner - when times were desperate, a brave hat could raise spirits. Vintage Hats & Bonnets is a time machine that follows the evolution of fashion from 1770 to 1970. The chapters are organized by decades and each has an historical overview, fashion overview, and hat descriptions, including information on materials, milliners, and designers of the day. Plus there's information on care, repair, and proper storage of hats. Just a few of the famous designers portrayed are Fortuny, Pengat, Patou, Olanvin, Paquin, Lelong, Schiaperelli, and Mary McFadden, values.
