Artist's description: 1950's patterned dresses - were often accompanied by "the hat". An essential accessory that topped many women's couture expressions; the hat is something that has faded from the everyday attire of the main stream society. Today, formality has relaxed, details have given way to simpler constructions. Form fitting, glamorous garb that expressed the physical attributes of the wearer have left the everyday arena - to make way for more comfortable, practical, and less fussy wear that allow for long workdays and limited leisure time. Now, a nostalgic memory - the 1950's detailed dress, finished by the Hat.
