Did you know your very own Back In Style made an appearance in Pantone on Fashion? That’s right! One of the dresses featured in the book was from Back in Style!
The dress was designed by Mollie Parnis, who happened to also have dressed four First Ladies during her career. In “Life” magazine, Parnis said, “I’m not interested in designing for the average housewife. I don’t even know her.” This feeling is clear in her 1970s Lavender Fog Ultrasuede Dress. The unique color and daring fabric make it a prime example of 1970s style.
This dusty shade of lavender still feels very contemporary. The Pantone article lists other designers who have used similar colors in their modern work. What a great spotlight on a fantastic piece of vintage clothing from your very own Back in Style!
