Adrian, Also Known As Gilbert Adrian (A More Marketable Combination Of His Father’S First Name And His Own), Studied At The New York School For Fine And Applied Arts, Now Known As Parsons School Of Design, Before Transferring To The School’S Satellite Campus In Paris In 1922. While Studying In Paris, Adrian Discovered His Passion For Costume Design After He Was Hired By The Great Songwriter Irving Berlin, To Design Costumes For Berlin's “The Music Box Revue.” In 1926 Adrian Signed A Contract With Cecil B. Demille, And In 1928, When Demille Moved To Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (Mgm), Adrian Went With Him. During His Time At Mgm, Adrian Designed Costumes For Over 250 Films, Including The Infamous Ruby Slippers, From “The Wizard Of Oz,” Handling Period Costumes And Contemporary Wardrobes. Adrian’S Contemporary Designs Were Elegant And Sought After, And Although Not Perfectly Historically Accurate, His Period Costumes, With Their Exaggerated Features And Dramatic Aura, Served To Emphasize The Narratives Adrian Was Working With. His Film Designs Were So Popular That Many Of Them Were Adapted For Retail In New York, And His Costume Sketches Were Often Published In Vogue.Adrian Left Mgm In 1942 To Open His Own Boutique In Beverly Hills, Later Opening One In New York. Adrian’S Distinct Straight-Shouldered, Slim-Jacket, Pencil Skirt Look Set The Everyday Dress Tone Of The 1940S, And His Voluminous, Beaded Evening Gowns Dominated The Luxury Design Landscape.

    Preowned 1940s Vintage Gilbert Adrian Original Dress Pink Ruffles Rare Designer Gown
    This Vintage Gilbert Adrian Dress Came From The Estate Of A Woman Who Owned A Luxury Fashion Boutique In The Northwest. She Saved A Few Of Her Favorite Pieces For All Of These Years And This Was One Of Them. The Dress Appears To Have Never Been Worn And Is In Excellent Condition With A Back Metal Zipper And Ribbon Tie At The Center Of The Top. The Layers Of Ruffles Are In A Pretty Pink Cotton And The Bodice Has An Almost "peasant" Look With A Fitted Waist. This Is An Incredible Dress And It Bears The Adrian Original Label.Gilbert Adrian Is One Of My Favorite Costume Designers And He Is Perhaps Most Famously Known For Designing Costumes For The Wizard Of Oz And For Hollywood Stars Including Joan Crawford (It Is Said He Created The Large Shoulder Pad Look Of The 1940's), Greta Garbo, Norma Shearer, Jeanette Macdonald, Jean Harlow, And Katharine Hepburn When He Was At Mgm. When He Left Mgm, He Started His Own Fashion House And Created Both Custom And Ready To Wear Garments. Sometimes, His Movie Fashions Would Be Interpreted Into Ready To Wear So That The General Public Could Wear The Latest Hollywood Sensation. I Don't Know For Certain, But You Can See That The General Style Of The Dress In The Photo Of Katharine Hepburn From Philadelphia Story, Designed By Adrian, Is Somewhat Similar To This One! Perhaps It Was Inspired By The One Worn By Ms. Hepburn. I Also Have A Very Rare Custom Gilbert Adrian Evening Gown Listed Right Now So Take A Look!Length From Under Arm To Waist: 9"Length From Waist: 44"Length From Top Of Shoulder To Waist: 15"Circumference Of Arm Opening: 13"

    Preowned 1940s Vintage Skirt Rayon Print Rare Best's Apparel Gilbert Adrian Collector
    I Acquired This Incredibly Beautiful Rayon 1940S Vintage Long Skirt From An Estate That Also Had 3 Gilbert Adrian Vintage Dresses. I Would Not Be Surprised If This Was Designed By Adrian. The Faux Patchwork Print Is So Unique And Has That Same Whimsy As Many Of Adrian's 1940's Prints. I Was Told By The Woman's Son That His Mother Actually Met Adrian And Was A Huge Fan Of His Ready To Wear Line. This Woman Ran Best's Department Store In The 1940S And 1950S And This Skirt, The Adrian Dresses And A (Also Unlabeled) Green Rayon Satin Hostess Gown Were The Only 5 Pieces She Saved From Her Many Years With The Store. Best's Apparel Was Eventually Acquired By Nordstrom In The 1960's And Became "nordstrom's Best." Although The Only Label Is One That Indicates "front", If Not Adrian, It Must Have Been Made By An Important Designer Or She Would Not Have Saved It. This Skirt Is In Mint Condition And The Hem Is Lined With 8" Of Black Satin For Weight. One Side Slit Pocket And Side Metal Zipper. I Would Estimate It To Be A Size 2/4. Please Use The Measurements As A Guide For A Proper Fit.Waist: 24"Length: 43"Hips: Free
