"Le Gaulois" Evening Dress, Elizabeth Hawes (American, 1903–1971): ca. 1938, American, silk. "...Hawes draped fabrics on the body and creatively pieced together wearable garments that were also beautiful works of art. Hawes’ philosophy toward fashion also shaped her aesthetic. She firmly believed there was a difference between fashion and style. Style, she declared, 'is dressing to fit your own self – it lasts.'..."
