This vintage lblack dress is made of linen and features crystal buttons and short sleeves. This LBD is tagged US size 8 by luxury designer William Pearson. This dress looks like it was just plucked off a high end boutique rack. This short sleeved black linen dress features exquisite tailoring and luxe linen fabric as well as 8 beautiful crystal buttons. Mr. William Pearson's trademark was to design high quality, conservative and classic pieces that flatter women. I have to confess that I bought this piece without knowing a thing about the designer or the exclusive shop Razooks. What first attracted to me to it was the quality of fabric and construction. Upon researching I found out some very interesting information. Designer William Pearson began his career in the 1950's, referring to himself as a "Classicist". In 1967, he moved to Paris to study Couture and find inspiration. Twice yearly he would return to Los Angeles and present his latest collection. He served on the faculty of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.
The story of Razooks is also an interesting one. Upon further research, I discovered just how exclusive Razooks boutiques were. The boutiques were located in the Plaza Hotel - NY, The Breakers - Palm Beach, Lake Placid Club, NY and Pinehurst NC. They were a very high end design boutique that defined luxury retail and served a very wealthy clientele.
