“The handmade harlequin style polished cotton blouse might be from the 1940s or even earlier. The age is unknown because it is such an unusual piece, but the construction appears as if a corset would have been worn under it. I purchased it from a friend of mine who owns a vintage boutique here in San Diego called La Loupe”.

This is a 1930s devastatingly sensational gown to die for 🖤! For sale on the Etsy shop TheRomantiquary https://www.etsy.com/nz/listing/811282281/incredible-1930s-black-satin-bishop?ref=user_profile. If she had been my size I would have snapped her up.

This Incredible 1930s dress is made of a luxurious black silk satin that is cut on the bias. The dress has an illusion neck with satin stripe detail on a black bobbinet. The neck closes up in the back with snaps that are hidden by sweet little bows. The sleeves on this gown are just superb, they are bishop sleeves that have been crossed with a leg of a mutton sleeve with the volume ending just below the elbow and are fitted the rest of the way down. There are faux buttons down the fitted sleeves with three buttons on the inside of the wrist that allow your hand to get through. The dress is an over the head slip-on style with a side opening done up with snaps. The dress has its original matching belt with rhinestone buckles and is attached at the waist with loops. The gown just slinks over the hips and falls gracefully to the ankles.

This Margit Fellegi bathing suit and skirt ensemble is outstanding, made from a Glazed cotton chintz, elastic Matletex fabric (cotton that was warp-woven with Lastex to give the fabric a subtle stretch).

Margit Fellegi was Cole of California’s Head Designer from 1936 to 1972. Though Cole of California is celebrated in the swimwear industry, Margit Fellegi is largely unknown today. The talented designer spent her entire career working under a corporate label, though she was often named in advertisements and recognized for her achievements on behalf of the brand. Fellegi was born in St. Louis, Missouri to Hungarian immigrants. She studied art at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, and was also a successful dancer – her introduction to design was through making her own stage costumes. Early in her career she opened a custom film costume design studio in Beverly Hills, but in 1936 she was poached by Fred Cole, head of Cole Knitting Mills (later named Cole of California) to be his Head of Design for the company. Fellegi set a fashion-forward standard for the American swimwear industry.
