Bonnie Cashin

A look at the quintessential American modernist, acclaimed for her “Auntie Mame” lifestyle, Bonnie Cashin’s iconoclastic approach to fashion, and her visionary designs for the modern American woman. A talented artist who happened to become a fashion designer, Bonnie Cashin was brilliant, free-spirited, and unconventional in all she did. Revered for her intellectual and independent approach to fashion, Cashin changed the way women dressed with her revolutionary, forward-thinking approach to life.
