Mainbocher on "Slang Fashion"

“As amusing as slang fashion is, it is not a complete language. I think women should dress as they talk: a basis of grammar, lightened here and there with a sprinkling of argot.”

—Mainbocher, 1967.

As quoted in The Lost Art of Dress: The Women Who Once Made America Stylish
