Vintage Editorials: Azzaro With Glitter…
“Most famous designers ascend to public fame after recognition in their own world of fashion, or after being lauded by the press. But Loris Azzaro, whose glittering clothes are first seen in these pages,
is being made successful by his customers – and when your clients are Lisa Minnelli, Bardot, Martinelli and Bacall, fame must follow. Already he has salons in Paris, Milan and Rome, and a boutique in St Tropez, where he started.”
“One of Azzaro’s trademarks is bare shoulders, in contrast to the totally covered look for evening which has been popular for so long.”
“Both are wearing Azzaro dresses – Miss Berenson’s in the clinging sequin fabric which is one of Azzaro’s favourites. Lisa Minnelli wears a purple jersey Azzaro design in the film – with bare shoulders and a curtain of fine chains over the midriff.
Other women who buy from this former schoolmaster turned dress designer are Marlene Jobert, Zsa Zsa Gabor (who bought 18 dresses on one visit), Elsa Martinelli, Jean Seberg, Lauren Bacall”
