Shocking Schiaparelli

I came across this little article on Else Schiaparelli on FabSugar this week. They also have some great pics!

Fabcon: Elsa Schiaparelli | elsa schiaparelli, Fabcon | FabSugar - Fashion & Style.

Parisian fashion designer of the 1920s and 1930s, Elsa Schiaparelli, was the first to use shoulder pads, animal prints (in 1947), and zippers dyed the same color as the fabric.

Even more info on the designer can be found at The Vintage Fashion Guild's Label Resource.
