A Fashionable Nod to an icon, to Denim And The World Of Gloria Vanderbilt

Gloria Vanderbilt Denim: Icons

A fashionable nod to a fashionable icon. Gloria Vanderbilt (1924-2019). She built a fashion empire. A member of the Vanderbilt family of New York, she was known as a fashion designer, heiress, and socialite, yet she was also an American artist, author and actress. Yet it is the recollection of her impact during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, when her line of denim impacted my youth. Noted as an early developer of designer blue jeans, it is the golden swan and the high waisted, fitted and slim fit denim blue jean that harkens my recollections of my youth. As a teen growing up on Long Island, New York during that time, I recall the impact of the swan. Yes, I indeed had a pair. It was a coveted pair. Oh, right alongside the coveted Jordache and Sasson jeans…

Gloria Vanderbilt. The Denim. The Woman.

In acknowledgement of Gloria Vanderbilt. Elegance and denim really do unite. Onward in that.
For the love of denim, thank you Gloria…

Onward,

Kristin
