As the world awaits confirmation that SARAH BURTON for ALEXANDER MCQUEEN was commissioned to design Kate Middleton’s wedding dress for the Royal Wedding, I’ve been thinking about other high profile women whose collaborations with fashion designers made fashion history.
Truth is, we all do it. Once we discover a brand or a label that fits our body like a glove we tend to not stray from them. But to work one-on-one with a designer to create your signature wardrobe must be a total dream!
One developing fashion collaboration is MICHELLE OBAMA and MICHAEL KORS. When all is said and done, for all of her fashion fairness, I believe fashion historians will proclaim that Michael was THE fashion designer of most importance in her White House wardrobe. From his yellow bouclé suit to the black jersey tank dress in the official White House photo, Michelle always looks modern and elegant in Michael’s clothes.
The most famous fashion collaboration was AUDREY HEPBURN and HUBERT de GIVENCHY (pronounced Gee-von-shee). Monsieur Givenchy met Audrey in 1953 on the set of Sabrina and began a lifelong friendship with her. Givenchy designed Audrey’s wardrobe in most of her movies including that famous black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and her model’s wardrobe in Funny Face. Interestingly, the clothes Givenchy created for Audrey over decades had recurring elements that were feminine, figure-flattering and in silhouettes that captured the essence of the roles she played on screen and the best of Audrey in real life.
