  • Lisa Barlow Flournoy

    "Diamond Horseshoe" detail, 1936. Elizabeth Hawes felt that the body and its clothes must work together. She thought that American women should not accept French fashion as the standard. Her goal was to bring stylish clothing with an American sensibility to the masses and believed that all women deserved to have beautiful and functional clothes.

"...The detail at the center front of the bodice of the dress is a similar form to that of metal decorative ornaments from the same culture and it appears as if it catches the fabric of the halter-style bodice, creating a gathered effect. At the bottom of the appliqué, the skirt is tucked at either side of the point and gathered, creating a three-dimensional effect..."
