Bill Blass is an American legend. From the moment he arrived in New York from his native Indiana, a kid of seventeen with good looks and charm, he was determined to be a success in fashion.
Bill Blass was at the intersection of American fashion and society for fifty years. He was the first designer to break out of the back rooms of Seventh Avenue and be welcomed into the drawing rooms of New York; to put his name on a variety of products, including automobiles; and to travel across this country, meeting and dressing women who were taste-makers in their towns.
With refreshing, unapologetic candor and with more than eighty rarely seen photographs, Bare Blass reveals the story of an American original.
