A little bit about Bonnie Cashin, she was one of the most innovative designers America ever produced. She was among the first designers to create and popularize what was a uniquely American approach to clothing—sportswear. One of a handful of women to make significant and lasting contributions to American fashion design, Cashin’s collaboration with Sills was when she had her greatest impact and when her signature style solidified. They pioneered the use of leather in high fashion clothing, and Cashin introduced the concept of layering clothing as well as brass hardware for garment closures. She later used the signature hardware when designing Coach handbags. Cashin won three Coty American Fashion Critics’ Awards for design, two of them while working with Sills. - Costume & Textiles Department The Ohio State University
