Fashion Design www.fcclainc.org Identify Concerns 1950’s clothing has made a tremendous come back into the 2009 world of fashion. However, only high end retailers offer the vintage look that appeals to most young professional women
Fashion Design www.fcclainc.org Set a Goal Design an affordable line of 1950’s inspired clothing that can be sold at accessible retailers
Fashion Design www.fcclainc.org Label & Explanation Label Name: Marilyn Label Description: Marilyn clothing is designed for young professional women looking to enter the working world. Words like “glamour”, “luxurious”, and “sophisticated” describe their sense of fashion. 1950s style couture clothing is back in demand…however, the materials (i.e. wool and felt) of the past are too heavy for today’s living. The Marilyn line provides a refreshed version of feminine, glamorous looks from the 50s.
Fashion Design www.fcclainc.org Historical Inspiration The fashion of the 1950s is based primarily on the New Look style set in the late 1940s by Dior. Many vintage styles of the 50's are full skirted, but some are the slim sheath dresses favored by other designers such as Jacques Fath, the sack dress of the late fifties designed by Hubert de Givenchy and the encrusted embroidered striking jeweled evening designs of Pierre Balmain. Other famous European designer names of the 50's era include Christobal Balenciaga, Coco Chanel, Jacques Heim, Molyneux, Paquin, Robert Piguet, Jean Patou, Jean Desses, Jacques Griffe, Nina Ricci, Fabiani, Madame Gres (earlier models called Alix) and the House of Lanvin. They are the most sought after vintage European design names to seek from 50's clothing. Prized 50's American designer names include Claire McCardell, Mainbocher (Main Rousseau Bocher), Galanos, Pauline Trigère and the Anglo-American Charles James.
Fashion Design www.fcclainc.org Clientele Marilyn women remember that they’re women. Marilyn’s potential customers are seeking clothing that is professional, affordable, and feminine. These women are in the early stages of their career in the professional world. They understand that appearing put together on the outside will help them succeed. Therefore, they care about their appearance, but their salaries are not substantial enough to always shop in high-end department stores or buy everything brand name. They have a few basic, versatile pieces of high quality and supplement their wardrobe with less expensive, seasonal pieces. Marilyn women do not belong to a specific race or geographic region, they are determined primarily by their job.

Fashion Design www.fcclainc.org Follow Up I showed my collection designs to women who would be considered potential customers of the Marilyn label to get feedback. The reviews were generally positive, but the need for additional basic pieces for the line were needed to help these women put together a full wardrobe of modern, ‘50s inspired clothing they love. After expanding the collection with pieces suggested by my sample of young, professional women, I submitted the Marilyn collection with my application to the Fashion Institute of Technology. I am proud to say that I was accepted and am a step closer to realizing my career goals.
