An Old New Find For Me

I seem to have found myself finding vintage clothes and loving them and not being able to resist them. These are from known designers from the 60’s and before (I think). Jeanne Marc I remember from the hippie days from North Beach in San Francisco.  The yellow outfit is a copy of Adolpho. Jigsaw from London designed the navy blue and white one.The dress with the bow is by Cynthia Steffe. And the Marimekko dress reminds me of dresses I made and wore. Anyhow the fabrics are delicious and some of the construction is haute couture. What a find for a textile lover.

  1. Oh my. Brought back memories. I had quite a few Marimeko dresses when I lived in Cambridge MA in the 60’s. Wish I had saved them.

    • I am a member of the Textile Arts Council of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. We get notices all the time of textile events in the Bay Area. This was announced by email and was in the home of a collector and was for two days. If you are in the Bay Area you should look into joining the Textile Arts Council for activities and monthly lectures and a good community of textile lovers. You’ll be surprised how many of us there are.
