-1950's absolutely exquisite couture designer luis estevez grenelle cocktail party dress

Luis Estévez (b. 1930) was born in Cuba. After a brief job at Lord & Taylor, he decided to make fashion his career. He attended the Traphagen School of Fashion, then went to Paris to work for Jean Patou for two years. In 1955 he began designing under his own name at Grenelle-Estévez, a venture that lasted until 1968. He also designed swimwear for Sea Darlings in the 1960s and 1970s and designed men’s wear for Jaymar in the 1970s. In 1972 he began designing under a label for actress Eva Gabor, and at the same time, designed for Universal Studios.

In 1977 Estévez began doing design work for private clients, many of whom were Hollywood stars. He retired from designing in 1997.

-fully lined
