What does Millie the Model have to do with Frederick's of Hollywood?
The two together is how I started my career in fashion design and more specifically in loving fashion. As a young girl, and of course knowing this will age me, but I know you won't tell, I had a passion for drawing and creating. I used my favorite comic character and catalogs my mother ordered, I was far to young to order from the Frederick catalog, as inspirations for my drawings and clothing designs.
Goodbye my most fashionable Millie, Chili and Jill! Marvel comics put a demise to your sophistication and turned you all into a real cartoon character, probably to keep Archie and his gang in good company.
You all were some curvy young women!
I still love your outfits, yes they are very goovey indeed, but your makeup looks terrible. Oh, and lets not forget about your many hairstyle moods. Older millie the model hairdo shots and.....
New redo Millie and Chili hairdos, swinging hairstyles for life in the 60s.
And as for Frederick's of Hollywood, well just look at the drawings
they were just so much fun to redraw and work out my own designs, it was easy to work with curves and show off design details. Of course, my orginal designs did not have such pointy bust, I thought that was a little to un-natural, after all it was the sixty's. Love vintage!
