Cecil Beaton Fabric

The late Sir Cecil Beaton, two-time Academy Award winning costumer designer (for Gigi and My Fair Lady), prolific photographer, and has a line of fabrics to add to his expansive repertoire. His haute couture renderings and whimsical drawings have been translated into fabrics, silks and wallpapers. The sketches date from as early as 1929, but are strikingly modern. I especially love the ladies fashion illustration print, Beaton's Beauties, drawings of 1950s Dior and Balenciaga runway looks. How adorable in a little girl's room?!
