History of Mr. Oleg Cassini (1913-2006). He began designing in 1936. His look was very sexy and at times, flamboyant. But he was best known as the “Couturier to Camelot” and his fashion collaboration with First Lady Jackie Kennedy. That collaboration had a profound impact on the way America women dressed, with the “Jackie O” look coming to mean simple designs with easy fit, straight lines and boxy jackets. One of Oleg Cassini’s last lines was the Platinum Collection made to order based on his 1960’s designs for Mrs. Kennedy.
