LARD have mercy because I haven't seen this label in a million years floating around the thrift stores but this day I found 3 pieces of Gloria Sachs . I was at Goodwill when a STYLISH lady said to me "excuse me but are the thrifter guy???" We couldn't stop chatting and then Nancy said 'I saw this gorgeous Gloria Sachs skirt over here and put it back'. She showed me where it was and then minutes later I scored this Gloria Sachs silk blouse. I said to myself this is very unusual to find 2 pieces from this designer that I haven't seen in forever. Later I leave and hit another thrift store and scored the black velvet skirt. 3 Gloria Sachs pieces from 2 different thrift stores all in 1 day. WOW is right… This designer is amazing and here's why… Gloria studied painting with Fernand Leger in Paris in 1949, she studied architecture with Gio Ponti & Franco Albini in Italy… Gio Ponti is one of my favorite architects that designed some of the most amazing furniture and I actually own a Gio Ponti table that I pillaged from a thrift store years ago and paid $35 for it and one just like it sold on 1st bids for $4,500. Gloria worked as a model for Balenciaga & Balmain in Paris in 1949, she worked as a textile designer for Hans Knoll & Herman Miller. She established her own business on Seventh Avenue in 1970. Her first designs established her as a smart, casual separates designer. Mix & match pleated skirts, jackets and coats teamed with tailored shirts where particularly distinctive. Sachs is famous for her clever development of textile designs in her fashion. Her fantastic creations were sold at Saks & Neiman Marcus and unfortunately the early 90′s proved to be difficult for Sachs and closed her business.
