Stepping Away From Fashion For Some Time, Iconic Fashion Designer Alber Elbaz Returns With His Own House, AZ Factory

“Now, during the pandemic I’m not seeing the pink hats and leopard skirts at the shows, I see sweaters and shirts- these are the women, this is the need, and I designed my first story with zero ego,” says Alber Elbaz…

He is a designer that truly has women in his heart and mind when creating collections, or as he rather likes to refer to them as ‘stories.’

Monika Tilley, Fashion Designer and Activewear Pioneer, Dies at 86

Monika Tilley, a designer of racy swimsuits that glistened from the covers of Sports Illustrated magazine on models like Christie Brinkley and Cheryl Tiegs and a pioneer of activewear and loungewear, died on Dec. 23 in Manhattan. She was 86.

Her daughter, Mona Tilley, announced the death in January. She said her mother died in a hospital after having multiple strokes.

Ms. Tilley was not a name designer like Bill Blass or Calvin Klein; she was an industry talent known for her work for Anne Cole, Anne Klein, White Stag and other companies, designing what would become a uniquely American style of dressing. She created a line for Caitlyn Jenner when she was a track star in the 1970s, and collaborated with Ms. Brinkley on a line of swimwear in 1984. For the Winter Olympic Games in 1980 and 1984, she designed the parade uniforms for the American teams.
