Our local furrier let us know that this stole is wild mink and is 70 - 80 years old. Wild minks are smaller than ranch minks so the individual pelts are more narrow.  These dark brown pelts are perfectly matched dark brown pelts creating slightly darker striping. 

In the middle of the back of the stole is a surprise, the head with glass eyes. Bakelite chain runs across the front and hooks into a loop on the other side. Brown silk crepe lining with small inside pocket. Please read condition report.

MARK/LABEL: Geoffrey Beene

Geoffrey Beene, born in Louisiana in 1927. After dropping out of medical school he moved to Los Angles and studied fashion design. He later studied in New York City and Paris. He founded his firm, Geoffrey Beene, Inc., in New York City in 1963. A year later, he was awarded the Coty American Fashion Critics' Award, one of the most prestigious awards in the field of fashion. His first collection was featured on the cover of Vogue Magazine. Beene's clients included Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, Nancy Reagan, Faye Dunaway and Glenn Close.[ In 1968, he designed Lynda Bird Johnson’s wedding dress. Beene was known as both an innovator and a teacher. Several of his former apprentices such as Kay Unger and Alber Elbaz are now successful fashion designers.

Eunice Johnson founded the Ebony Fashion Fair (EFF) in 1958. Johnson was co-owner, with her husband, of Chicago-based Johnson Publishing Company, the publisher of Ebony Magazine. The annual fashion show featured male and female models of mostly African-American descent modeling fashions from top European designers such as: Yves St Laurent, Oscar de la Renta, Pierre Cardin, Paco Rabanne, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino and Emanuel Ungaro. Johnson's aim was to bring high fashion couture to the African-American woman who often didn't have access to the best shops.

 

Many African-American fashion designers got their start with the show including Stephen Burrows, Patrick Kelly and Willi Smith. The EFF ended in 2009 after the death of Eunice Johnson. Since her passing, Johnson Publishing has been gradually deaccessioning the fashion archive. This collection from Madge includes some of the last pieces that will be made available.
