Review

"What I truly appreciate was her fabric sensibility, even with more constructed fabrics like denim. She made them all look so soft and drapey. The halters she did were so modern. The thing is, you look at some of the things she did, and you can't believe it was the '40s."--Anna Sui

"Humble fabrics and rich designs--Pure Americana! Purely inspirational!McCardell broadened all of our visions and elevated the entire fashion industry to another level."--Geoffrey Beene

"I identify so much with Claire McCardell . . . that I can't believe it."--Isaac Mizrahi

"Her sportiness and chicness for me are definitely revolutionary."--Guillaume Henry, Creative Director, Carven

"Claire McCardell's clothes were timeless. She was the first designer to look not to Paris for inspiration but to the needs of the American woman." Michael Kors
