Quilted ensembles from Cashin’s designs for Russel Taylor Weatherwear.
I love Bonnie Cashin, she was so incredibly modern. Her clothes still look totally of the moment and so American (in the best sense of course). She was a big influence on me as a young designer and I still feel inspired by her, for her designs, and as a woman who carved out her own niche in the design world. She deserves far more recognition then she receives, perhaps as time goes on more people will realize just how big her talent was and how she impacted sportswear and the lives of modern working women even to this day…even if she does not get the credit, her influence is all around us.
