established in 1973, native los angeles designer Diane Freis' trademark piece is the one-size-fits-all polyester georgette dress in bold and coloutrful prints. although popular in the west among celebrites and society types, freis acheived her greatest successes after opening shop in Hong Kong in 1978.


from 1935 to the mid eighties the Nat Kaplan brand produced high quality clothing in New York City. after the companys founder and namesake suddenly passed away in 1956 his wife Sylvia took over for him. previously a homemaker and mother of four, she approached the business with a naivete that in fact boulstered its success; focusing on comfort and wearablilty while maintaining the quality and tailoring the label was known for.

Peck & Peck, another New York City label, was founded in 1888 by brothers Edgar Wallace and George H. Peck. with its first incarnation as a hoisery store, the brand eventually became very successful with 78 high-end womenswear boutiques across the united states. the typical Peck look is refined and preppy, with classic cuts and shapes.

 founded in the 1960s and purchased by Jessica Mclintock in 1969, Gunne Sax is synonymous with the prairie revival of the 1970s. the flowing bell sleeves and sweeping skirts paired with a corseted or empire waist play on the demure and romantic theme of the free-spirited 70s with a medieval twist. Gunne Sax perfected the look manufacturing dresses, blouses and skirts rife with ribbons, lace, and floral prints.
