Alberto Fabiani

Alberto Fabiani (1910) ~~ Best known for his uncluttered designs with clean tailoring, he became famous for his tent coats in the 1960's. He married fashion designer Simonetta and briefly worked in conjunction with her in 1962 in Paris until their divorce. He continued to design until his retirement in 1974. This late 1960's design features a high-fitted and slightly flared dress in above or mid-knee length with a bias collar and front bias inset. The dress has a front zipper closing and shaped back bodice.

B is for Bear

This is just one small part of a collection of school posters from Miss Priss, a now retired school teacher who taught for .... well, let's just say that this example is from the 1950's....because Miss Priss doesn't actually want to reveal her real age. Perfect to frame for baby's nursery. Thanks to Miss Priss I have a growing collection of vintage school posters.
