Legends of Design: Tony Duquette

Tony Duquete was a designer living and working in the golden age of Hollywood. He was discovered and mentored by the "Queen of Good Taste," Elsie de Wolfe. He was known for creating spectacular interiors, sets, costumes, and jewelry using found objects and dime store finds. He is absolutely one of my icons, and has been an inspiration to decades of designers following him. I've never seen anyone with an imagination quite as active as his! So, dear readers, get ready for a visual explosion that will surely make your head spin...
