I love going through my mom’s archives, I find the coolest things! Like this advertisement for one of her Slow Stitch Company leather outfits modeled by Priscilla Presley. I’m mean, c’ mon! So awesome!
My mom told me that while she was selling her handmade pieces, she came across this store, Bis & Beau, in the 70s.
It was co-owned by Priscilla Presley and Olivia Bis and opened in 1973 in Los Angeles. Priscilla had been working on her own clothes for a long time, so a shop with her stylist friend seemed like a good endeavor. The shop was successful and even had celebrity clients like Natalie Wood, Cher, Jane Fonda, Barbara Streisand, and Lana Turner. I wonder if any of them bought my mom’s pieces!?
The styles in this store looked killer, so 70s chic! I probably would have bought everything in there, still would.
Does anyone else out there have any connection to this store? If yes, I would love to hear from you.
Can’t wait to see what else I find in my mom’s archives!
