Hats Galore by Jeanne Tete

Little is know about the personal life of Jeanne Tete except she was born in Indianapolis and adopted the name Tete to give her design line a French flair.

By 1939 she was already known in New York and was designing for Bonwit-Teller. Later in 1940 it was noted in an ad for the San Antonio store Wolff & Marx that she designed expressly for that store. This information was provided by the Vintage Fashion Guild.

Her designs are always something special. Over the top embellishments for ladies who want to be noticed.

Below is two examples of her creations, available for sale at After Dark Vintage on ArtFire.
