Fashion Icon Friday…

Fashion Icon Friday’s at BDG is when I pay homage to my favorite Style Icon’s. Today I’m featuring one of my all time favorite models from the 1960’s… Jean Shrimpton. In the fashion world she is know to many but in case you are not
familiar with her modeling portfolio and style, she was the FACE of a generation. Dubbed the “It Girl”, and named model of the year in 1963, she was the highest paid model ever for that time.  According to wikipedia she was considered the “world’s first supermodel”.

When I started college at Fashion Institute of Technology, I named my dress form after Jean Shrimpton.  I just loved her style so much I thought it would bring me great inspiration…and it or she really did!
