Design Research

If you are a contemporary fashion designer, costume designer, or stylist, searching for the genesis or cornerstone to your next runway collection, lead character in a major motion picture, television or music video production then you will love this very special department that I have developed just for you.

We have an extremely comprehensive collection of important vintage couture and designer wear from the turn of the century to current contemporary designs that are available for either studio wardrobe or current fashion design inspiration.

The collection is limited to trade use only and may either be rented, sketched, or photographed for a fee. Please contact us directly for rates.

All rental agreements are based on a 24-hour to a one-year license and guarantee that NO other design house or entertainment project will have access to the item for a period of 12 months.

This private couture collection is constantly updated with vibrant and exciting pieces with a vision of something unique and different, offering a design element that hasn't been considered lately, bringing you a new interpretation reflecting an old technique of a bygone era that will ignite and inspire your current designs.

We also offer a vast array of design inspiration shoes and handbags spanning all decades, as well as a collection of vintage scarves and fabric prints that are available under the same research terms to all customers and fashion designers.

Not to be missed is my extensive library that is available to everyone during regular business hours, and we encourage you all, seasoned professionals to young students to make yourself comfortable in my salon and lose yoursel in my in-depth research library. Read, browse and enjoy to your heart's content.

Please forward to us any material you wish to submit to us prior to your private appointment that would facilitate us in appreciating your vision so that we may have pieces pulled for you in advance.
