“The nature of fashion is changing, and we have to find a new terminology to describe it. Fashion is no longer defined as a pretty dress. The important thing is how the dress works. I see my role as a designer as trying to make people’s lives easier.”

- Geoffrey Beene as quoted in The Fashion Makers, 1978

  1. HOW SWEET TO SEE THIS PICTURE AGAIN–I USED TO DESIGN FOR MR. BEENE STARTING IN 1976 (I WAS 16 AND LIED ABOUT MY AGE!), AND HAVE ZILLIONS OF FOND MEMORIES OF MY TENURE THERE, PLAYING WITH HIS DACHSHUNDS CHRISTIAN AND VITTORIO PICTURED HERE AMONG THEM! WILL NEVER FORGET HIS ULTRA SUEDE SMOCK JACKET–HE HAD IT MADE IN EVERY FABRICATION!

  2. Hello Steve,

    Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. Ahhh, the wonderful Mr Beene, thanks for posting these, photos, very inspiring. SG

  4. I was his photographer (mainly) for 20 years. He was a brilliant Svengali. I always did my best work when I was shooting for him- he brought that out of people.
