Adriane-Made for Helen Gurley Brown

Just one of my many fantasies,  the only one that I'll be sharing with you today (wink) is to own one of these great pieces made from hand- enameled metal mesh.

The first is my favorite.
I would pair it with my black leather pants and be ready for anything 
(well except dealing with airport security of course!)

A collection of over 50 pieces will be available for purchase exclusively at FROCK, including pieces chosen for the "Goddess" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2003.
Prices range from $2,000-$12,000

We invite you to view collection and meet the designer Douglas Ferguson.

 Douglas Ferguson's colorful hand-enameled metal mesh costumes for the Joffrey Ballet led the way to a series of glamorous one-of-a-kind chain mail pieces spearheading Revlon's The World's Most Unforgettable Women; commemorating The Statue of Liberty for Vogue, while gracing the covers and editorial pages of Bazaar, Cosmo, and New York Magazine among others. Exhibitions of note include Cream of the Crop: The New Couture (1985) The Museum of the City of New York,  East Village: The New Vanguard (1987) F.I.T., New York, The Historical Mode (1989) F.I.T., New York, Goddess: The Classical Mode (2003) The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and Goddess (2004) MoMu, Antwerpen

Thanks to everyone for their answers. quiz will have to be a bit more difficult.

I'm sure that all of the Mugler fans will agree that James was an important influence on Thierry Mugler.

Three dresses three guesses-Who designed these?
Hint-He left Chicago and moved to Long Island, NY with 70 cents, a Pierce arrow and a few hats as his only possessions. He showed one of his most successful collections in 1947.
