The self-taught Muir made her name in the 1960s, creating a reputation for exquisitely tailored, timeless, feminine clothing. She has been hailed as the greatest dressmaker in the world, in a league with Madame Grès, Chanel and Vionnet.
Jean Muir spring/summer 1974. She worked a lot with jersey fabric and other slippery stuff that's easy to mess up. Lots of topstitching and sewn down pleats. Her designs are very feminine but sometimes a little stern. She was making dresses for the liberated woman.
