GABRIELA BASSO CLOTHING
LITTLE EDIE COLLECTION 2014/2
In our third print collection for fashion designer Gabriela Basso, we explored
the history and life of Edith Beale, the iconic Little Edie from Grey Gardens.
Edith Beale’s (Little Edie) dream was to be a star: she wanted to
be a model, a dancer, a singer. To live art. Her plans didn’t go
the way she imagined but she had her life immortalized in the
documentary Grey Gardens, becoming an eccentric fashion icon.
Through the prints, we told the history of the muse who inspired
the 2014/2 collection of fashion designer Gabriela Basso. We
created patterns based on her amazing life, like her ice cream
diet, her stardom dreams, the hydrangeas in the backyard. And
we could not forget to eternalize some of the dozens of cats
who lived with her and her mother, Big Edie.
