There are quite a few iconic Fashion designer of the yester years who have gifted us with the opportunity to witness the creations of their beautiful minds. One such designer is Edith Head; you are all aware, if you do surf the web, – that google is celebrating Edith Head’s 116th Anniversary on this day of 28 October 2013.
Naturally as a relic of Vintage Fashion, I couldn’t resist the urge to share Edith’s Anniversary with you. For those who are not familiar with Edith Head: She was born in 1897 as Edith Claire Posener in san Bernadino, California and was the most celebrated costume designer in the history of Hollywood not forgetting to mention that she was won the Oscars eight times. She became Edith Head after getting married to Charles Head- brother of one of her drawing classmates
In 1967 she left Paramount to join Universal pursuing her other passions creating drawing of Mid- Century Fashion. One of the period pieces she created was for ‘Lombard’ and ‘W.C.’ Fields and Me’.
To add to her already marvelous talents, Edith Head authored two books: ‘The Dress Doctor’ and ‘How to Dress for Success’. To add the cherry on the cream Edith acted as herself in two the two films ‘Lucy Gallant’ and ‘The Oscar’.
Edith Head Designed for many more films and TV series in her career; the Star and Fashion Designer of all times died in 1981 after a long term illness. To me she is as Beautifully Timeless as her exquisite Designs.
