Eliot Whittall and Eric Javitz, both graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design, joined forces after college to create this line of millinery in the early l980s. This label later became known as Whittall & Schon, when Richard Shon, one of the company's designers bought out Eric Javits. Both Javits and Whittall & Schon are still active companies.
