Who were Whittall and Javits

Eliot Whittall and Eric Javits, both graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design, joined forces after college in 1978, to create this millinery company.  In 1985 this label became known as Whittall & Schon, when Richard Shon, one of the company’s designers bought out Javits who created his own label.  Both Eric Javits and Whittall & Schon are still active companies.
