Your fashion maven recalls the first kaleidoscope she played with. To say she was loved it would be the same as saying the water is wet. She adored it. Perhaps this designer played with a kaleidoscope as a lad, amazed the continually changing pattern of color. He is known for among other things, his geometric prints in a mosaic of colors.
The fashion maven is much too young to remember a time when stretch fabrics weren’t widely available, but our designer for today, Emilio Pucci, was at the forefront of developing such fabrics and using them in his own designs.
Barbie makes another appearance this month, wearing uniforms designed for the stewardesses of Braniff airlines between 1965 and 1974. And one mustn’t forget the Rain Dome or Space Helmet that he designed for the female flight crew. Stylish stewardesses didn’t want their hair mussed by rain or the gust of wind from a jet engine.
He will forever be known as the “Prince of Prints” who passion for a medley of colors and shapes in his fabric brought his clothing design to the heights.
For those who do not know who the Fashion Maven speaks of when she mentions the revered name of Selina Shirley. She is the latest bright star at the House of Shirley established long ago, far in the future on the Federation planet, Tallav. Her love story has been published in Maon: Marshal of Tallav.
