Classic elegance in a 1960s cocktail dress from Herbert Sondheim, a very well known dress manufacturer in New York from the 30s through the 60s.Here is information on him taken from the Steven Kellen Archives for the Parson School of Design. "Herbert Sondheim taught at Parsons in 1946, ran a dressmaking business that produced affordable versions of high-end fashion. The Kellen Archives holds Sondheim's nineteen scrapbooks, the bulk of which contain fashion drawings depicting the work of Vionnet, Chanel, Molyneux, and others. Sondheim used these drawings as templates and inspiration for his own dress designs."Known for their chic, classic, ladylike style, even Jackie Kennedy wore his dresses.
