Not long after opening his own millinery house, adolfo began to design clothing to complement the hats his models wore, and by the mid-1960s his celebrity clients ranged from the duchess of windsor, gloria vanderbilt, and betsy bloomingdale to jackie kennedy onassis and nancy reagan (who wore a red adolfo dress, currently in the smithsonian, to her husband's second inaugural ball). His custom clothing was available both in his salon and in the adolfo boutique at saks fifth avenue. Though by the 1980s he was best known for his ladylike, chanel-inspired cardigan suits, in the 1960s adolfo's designs were playful and even flamboyant.

He won a second, special coty award in 1969 for his head to toe women's design. His licensed lines in the 1970s included menswear, scarves, perfume and wigs, and in 1985 he introduced adolfo atelier, a lower priced women's sportswear line. In 1993 he retired from custom design to focus on his licensed businesses.

This designer adolfo 60s/70s 100% raw silk skirt was made in new york. It has a stiff backing to the overskirt and a full underskirt to give it a wonderful fullness. It has a hidden zipper at the back of the waist. It has a lovely attached blue ribbon that wraps beautifully around the waist and then ties in either the front or back. Shown tied as a bow in front. It has a full skirt that is gathered and pleated generously around the waist band.

The fabric design is blue, pink, and ivory florals on a slate blue/grey background. Includes the 1 1/2" waist band, skirt is 42"full skirt.
