1960s Fashion – The Jackie Kennedy Mannequins 1961.

The wonderful archive at Time Life Magazine throw up some beauties every now and then. These wonderful photos were taken on the way and at John Frederic’s shop in New York in January 1961.

The caption which went with these pictures when Life Magazine first published it all those years ago ran as follows: : “Making its debut, Jackie mannequin, a standard size 10, stands at John Frederic’s shop in New York where pillbox hats sell for $35 to $70.”. These images remind us of how huge an influence this remarkable woman had on the world of early 1960’s fashion. The sheer elegance of her style – always wearing the latest Chanel or Oleg Cassini dress. These mannequins of both Jackie and Jack appeared when Jack was still president elect. The Jackie style obsession was already well underway.

  1. I never knew that you had such a thing as the Jackie Kennedy Mannequin. Jacqueline Kennedy the most elegant and ladylike First Lady of the White House that I can remember. Good times “Camelot” it even spread to England. Oleg Cassini designs, didn’t Grace Kelly wear his clothes and were they not in love, but the Father of Grace Kelly stopped the relationship.

    Saw the Painting of Mrs Obama, she looked ridiculous, and never appeared like a First Lady. compared to Jackie Kennedy. Reblogging.
