She certainly was. But where did she learn all this? I don't remember her working under any designer. Didn't she just set up a hat shop, and then continued from that? It's been ages since I read any books of her/her work.

^ that's exactly how it happened, she had 3 millinery shops (1912) and then she expanded to couture (1920).
