The following information is provided courtesy of the Vintage Fashion Guild Label Resource. Lilly Daché got her start in the millinery business by working in a small shop in New York City in 1924. By the 1930s she was also producing handbags and other accessories. Her business had grown to the point that she needed two buildings in which to house her operation. Besides designing for the public, Daché worked with Hollywood designer Travis Banton, producing hats to complement his dresses and suits for the movies. Lilly Daché retired in 1968. Her last customer was actress Loretta Young, who bought 30 hats – the last hats in the shop.
