Jacqueline Kennedy (July 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994), wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and First Lady of the United States, fashion tear sheet with original hand-written notes by Mrs. Kennedy. 

A 4 x 12.50" fashion tear sheet, sent by Jackie Kennedy to her fashion designer Oleg Cassini. Jackie pens a note, "Adore this - but in wrong material could be ghostly - maybe one of these with white stitching on colar cuffs - belt - white buttons - or navy - with white collar + cuffs white stiching on belt." Along the lower border she has assed "Hermes." Mrs. Kennedy has also pinned two fabric swatches to the tear sheet as a style guide.

Oleg Cassini (11 April 1913 – 17 March 2006) was an American fashion designer born to an aristocratic Russian family with maternal Italian ancestry. He came to the United States as a young man after starting as a designer in Rome, and quickly got work with Paramount Pictures. Cassini established his reputation by designing for films.

He became particularly well known as a designer for Jacqueline Kennedy whilst she was First Lady of the United States. The "Jackie Look" was to become highly influential and much admired. Among Cassini's inspirations were sports and Native American culture.

This piece provides a first hand look at the creative process which would define the timeless style of American’s beloved First Lady.

Fine vintage condition with light expected handling wear. Irregularly torn edges.
