Date: 1937 16x20 250 Signed Description: Woman wearing a Lilly Dache-designed veil, with flower pattern placed strategically over her left eye, thus the title Black-Eyed Veil. Born in Beigles, France, Lilly Dache (1898 ? 1989) was one of America's best known milliners. At a time when hats were considered more important than dresses, Lilly was considered the top milliner in New York. She was well known for her flamboyant style; including close-fitting brimmed cloche hats, Snoods, caps and draped turbans. Also designing hats for movies, she designed for stars including Betty Grable and Marlene Dietrich. Following World War II Lilly added dresses and accessories to compliment her millinery line, and continued to create ready-to-wear millinery collections throughout the 1950s and 60s.
