Maker Note: Lilly Daché (1898-1989) was a French milliner and fashion designer who immigrated to the United States in 1924. She became known for her draped turbans, half hats and visored caps for war workers, snoods and massed-flower hats. By 1949 she was designing dresses to go with her hats, as well as lingerie, loungewear, gloves, hosiery and a wired strapless bra.
