THE INFLUENCE OF CLAIRE MCCARDELL

We're taking a moment to give a nod to one of the many True Fashionista designers of a bygone generation that have influenced today's fashion stars. The name Claire McCardell may not immediately be as legendary as long-established brands like DiorHermès, or Louis Vuitton.
