Luis Estevez was born in Cuba in 1930 and after working with Jean Patou in Paris in the early 1950s, he returned to the US in 1955 to start his own business--winning the Coty the very next year, the youngest recipient at 26. Through his illustrious career, he dressed many great and fashionable women including legendary dancer and movie star Cyd Charisse, who just passed away, as well as, Nathalie Wood and Lana Turner.

This light lilac ruched crepe jersey dress that gathers sensually in the back was made for Michelle Phillips in the 1970s. The color is so flattering on many skin tones and the style is completely timeless. Luis Estevez founded the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 1962 and we salute both his design achievements and ability to bring American designers together for the benefit of the industry as a whole.
