Fashion Walk of Fame

Mainbocher was known for the understated elegance of his couture clothing. Among his innovations were short evening dresses, jeweled sweaters, and a revival of the corset that anticipated Dior's New Look. Most famous for designing the Duchess of Windsor's trousseau in 1937, he also designed uniforms for the WAVES, the Red Cross, and the Girl Scouts.
