Fashion Icon Friday: Gilbert Adrian

Well Gilbert Adrian wasn't really an icon 
but he did make a lot of beautiful famous actresses Fashion Icons.
Gilbert was the foremost "celebrity" costume designer in Hollywood.

He worked at MGM film studios, where he designed iconic pieces for film stars.
He also tailored a suit with wide shoulders and strong emphasis on the waist, 
this was called the Coat Hanger Look.

I was contacted last night to do a fashion show
 for an art gala called SPACE TAKER GALA in March...
the theme is Horror Films, they are wanting to do a 60s/70s campy theme fashion show.
Total EXCITEMENT!

Have a great weekend sweets =)
