Introducing the Hat Collection of Jeannette Brewer

Last week, I was lucky enough to purchase a large collection of hats that belonged to New York socialite, Jeannette Brewer. Jeannette was born in 1892 in Brooklyn. She married in the 1920s and moved to Manhattan where she was quite the social butterfly. She was a fashion maven, and shopped at the best stores. Many of her hats bear labels from Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's Little Shops, and on and on. I have Jeannette's 1920s wedding coronet, a couple of her flapper cloches, and loads of stylish toppers from the 1930s and 40s. I am very excited to bring this collection to you at Couture Allure, as these are some of the best hats I've had in years! Be sure to watch the site for Jeannette's hats over the next several weeks.
