In the seventies, hats became less fashionable and were no longer considered an essential part of one’s outfit. Ogilvie was forced to close the Rowe’s Arcade premises in 1972 and move to Indooroopilly. Ogilvie hats incorporated international fashion trends but more importantly, they matched the personalities of their wearers and each hat was a one-off.
Queensland Museum has a collection of approximately thirty-six Patrick Ogilvie pieces which span the height of his career and display his diverse style and approach to millinery.
