In designing the collection, I have sourced the most distinctive vintage embroidery and beading samples from Mary Ann Embroidery, a company active in Los Angeles from the 1940s through the 1960s, once used by fashion icons such as Galanos, Norell, Halston and Blass.
A 1960s Galanos gown showing beaded detail from Resurrection Vintage.
Norman Norell gown from Decades.
A 1950s gown with detail from Couture Allure.
A mix of both classic and modern shapes and an assortment of the finest materials were selected to highlight and frame the elegant workmanship of the vintage samples.
Pauline and Paulette pillows
Detail of Paulette
Clearly, these are not pillows to lounge on, I consider them jewelry for the home. Each pillow comes with it's own silk organza dust bag!
