A Model Collection
Dobie D. Hogan was a print and runway model throughout her adult life. Her substantial jewelry collection, pieces of which are being offered in our Signature Spring Auction, was a result of her long involvement with the fashion industry, combined with an inherited interest in jewels.
In the 1950s, Hogan worked in New York as a model for the Paris fashion designer Mainbocher. Later in life she returned to her native Virginia, where she continued her modeling career. In the 1970s she was voted one of the Hampton Roads area's best dressed women. Her mother, Louise Jenkins Driver, was also interested in fashion and jewelry, and it was from her that Hogan first learned to appreciate them. She then built her collection throughout her life, making for a varied selection with an emphasis on classic pieces that have outlasted any trends.
