Carolyn Schnurer Translates her Gold Coast Memo's into Fashion

Carolyn Schnurer only had a short visit into the fashion industry from 1944 - 1964 during her lifetime. Her career travels took her to many exotic places which in turn were inspiration for her clothing designs. Many of these trips were sponsored by stores such as Peck & Peck with other support coming from the textile design companies that helped to create her work. Dan River, Fuller, Bates, Arthur Beir, and Hollander were among the companies she worked with to develop textiles based on the motifs which filled her travel notebooks.

Here we see 9 different looks inspired by her travels. As always you can click on the images to enlarge. Enjoy!
