Designer Elizabeth Hawes American

Not on view

Designed by the practically minded Elizabeth Hawes, this belt is a very singular design. The red ribbon edging is an effective touch and the pendants would create movement when the wearer walked. This is truly a diverse accessory piece that could be worn with a number of items. Unlike any ordinary belt, this one would enliven an otherwise rather ordinary dress.
