About Oleg Cassini

See more books from this Author
One of the world's foremost fashion designers, Oleg Cassini continues to run his international business from New York City. Born a count in Czarist Russia, Cassini was raised in Italy and later came to America, where he worked as a costume designer in Hollywood. He lived a glamorous, jet-set life as part of the extravagant Hollywood elite while maintaining his position as a member of European society. Once married to actress Gene Tierney, he was later engaged to marry Grace Kelly. In the 1950's Cassini began his own successful fashion business, but his greatest achievement was being selected as Jacqueline Kennedy's personal and exclusive designer in 1960. As the couturier to the First Lady, Cassini had a worldwide impact on fashion.
