milliner rose valois

During the Occupation of France, the only true way for a woman to flaunt her extravagance and add colour to a drab outfit was to wear a hat. In this period, hats were often made of scraps of material that would have otherwise been thrown away, sometimes incorporating butter muslin, bits of paper, and wood shavings. Among the most innovative of the time were Pauline Adam, Simone Naudet, Rose Valois, and Le Monnier. (Source)
