Fashion Friday: A Tribute to Tassell
In the 1960s, Philadelphia-born designer Gustave Tassell achieved international acclaim for his refined women’s clothes and accessories. A favorite of Jacqueline Kennedy and Princess Grace of Monaco, the drama of Tassell’s designs was in their simplicity, according to Dilys E. Blum, The Jack M. and Annette Y. Friedland Senior Curator of Costumes and Textiles. In tribute to Tassell, who passed away last month, we’re sharing five favorites from our Tassell collection. Explore more here.
