History of Mary McFadden: Known for her exotic design. She began her career in 1973 selling hand painted silk dress at Bendel’s. In 1975 she patented a new pleating technique, which produce a fabric that look Fortuny, but was made from polyester and in which the pleating was permanent. This fabric became her trademark. McFadden unexpectedly went out of business in 2003. History information courtesy of Vintage Fashion Guild.
