About

Burnt orange, three quarter length blouse with a wrap tie waist and cape back.



Mrs. Harp captivated Hollywood with a rich hippie look in the 1960's and enthralled New York with soft clinging designs. She was nominated for Coty awards twice.

When rock stars like Janis Joplin, Grace Slick and Stevie Nicks began exchanging jeans for Mrs. Harp's fringed vests and tie-dyed velvet dresses, the Holly's Harp shop that she opened on Sunset Boulevard in 1968 became the center of a new style.

She then later became a key design name in the Saks Fifth Avenue Store.

"I'm not trying to do tasteful little uniforms," she said in 1988. "Being dressed in perfect taste is very aging." Holly Harp died in 1995 in Los Angeles, California.
