In the 1960s, Miss Parnis acted as fashion editor of her own label, Mollie Parnis, while retaining the services of several designers. Over the years," she once said, "as many designers as we've had, the clothes always looked like Mollie Parnis." That meant versatile, comfortable dresses in good fabrics. They were fashionable but not trendy. She counseled women to avoid fads. "I've always had a theory, that good designing doesn't mean dresses you have to throw away every year. Things shouldn't go out of date overnight." Credits:
