Designer: Morton Myles

"There is no style, no quality dressmaking. There is no more fashion. It's just clothing." - Morton Myles

Morton Myles gained almost instant celebrity in 1961, when Jacqueline Kennedy wore his blue sleeveless linen dress on the cover of Look magazine for a family photo with President Kennedy. 

Mrs. Kennedy had come to Myles for some dresses when she was still a senator's wife, and she assured him her husband would soon be president.  And he was, of course. And there she was, the first lady, wearing Myles' robin's-egg blue dress. It was so simple, and yet her sense of style would become legendary.

Here is a Morton Myles dress from my collection.
