Cassini was such a great designer! The clothes he designed for JAckie were breathtaking.

I have his book A Thousand Days of Magic about his time as designer to Jackie Kennedy. It's a fascinating read, particularly in light of the exhibition that was held a few years ago and he and the Kennedys/Hamish Bowles got into an argument over who actually designed some of the clothes featured. Bowles said Cassini was trying to give himself too much credit and didn't have the sources to back himself up whereas the Met/Kennedy clan did. (I personally think Bowles was right because I've found some mistakes in ATDoM myself.)

I think he had a one-of-a-kind life.
