**A Great Discount Is Available!!---Click on my Name directly above ("Listed By Roxanne...") to read about my Multi-Sale Discount Offer in my Closet Profile** This gorgeous Black Fox Designer Coat by Geoffrey Beene is a deep, rich and glossy Black. The collar is so very thick and luxurious, while the body of this coat, with its fox pelts arranged vertically, spans 28.5" from shoulder to hem. The sleeves, accented by their diagonal-row design, span 23.5" from shoulder to end. Possessing deep hidden pockets lined in Black Velvet, a smooth-as-silk Black Satin Lining and a secure but hidden front Hook-and-Eye-closure, you are sure to be not only the "First" to truly wear this fabulous Coat, but Gorgeous, Elegant and Warm!! Originally purchased and monogrammed for a beautiful lady who on receipt of this gift, felt the coat was "too much" for her personality and fashion sensibilities, she gracefully 'bowed out' and stepped aside to allow the inevitable "stampede" of bold, fashion-fearless women who can wear this coat (as opposed to the coat 'wearing' them!) to begin vying for the priviledge. Only tried on indoors, this coat has never been 'Worn' outdoors, and thanks to the climate controlled storage facility, it is pristine and flawless!! *** Better known as Geoffrey Beene, Designer par excellence' Geoffrey Beene (born Samuel Albert Bozeman, Jr., August 30, 1927 -- September 28, 2004) was an American fashion designer. Beene was one of New York's most famous fashion designers, recognized for his artistic and technical skills and for creating simple, comfortable and dressy women's wear. Beene was born on August 30, 1927 in the small rural town of Haynesville, Louisiana located just south of the Arkansas state line. He was born into a family of doctors and was encouraged to follow in their footsteps. He studied medicine at Tulane University in New Orleans but dropped out in 1946, after three years of study. Beene moved to Los Angeles, where he studied fashion design at the University of Southern California and worked in the display department of the I. Magnin retail store until 1947. Later that year, he moved to New York City to attend the Traphagen School of Fashion and later, to Paris, where he attended the Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne (ECSCP) and the couture house of Molyneux. In 1949, he returned to New York, where he became Assistant Designer at the Seventh Avenue house of Harmay. In 1958, he left Harmay to design with Teal Traina, before founding his eponymous design house. Beene founded his firm, Geoffrey Beene, Inc., in New York City in 1963, in partnership with Teal Traina's Leo Orlandi in a Seventh Avenue showroom. A year later, he was awarded the Coty American Fashion Critics' Award, one of the most prestigious awards in the field of fashion. His first collection was featured on the cover of Vogue Magazine. In his 1970 collection, Beene applied the use of inexpensive fabrics such as sweatshirt and denim fabric for evening dresses. Introduced in 1971, the Beene Bag line of women's wear used the same silhouettes as his couture line. By the mid-1970s, Beene had a number of licensing agreements for products such as eyeglasses and bed sheets. In 1976, Beene became the first American designer to show a collection in Milan, Italy. This success led to his sixth Coty Award in 1977, for giving impetus to American fashion abroad. In 1982, Beene received his eighth Coty Award; the most awarded to any one designer, as of the early 2000s. In 1986, Beene was named The Council of Fashion Designers of America's Designer of the Year. Two years later, the Council of Fashion Designers of America awarded Beene The Special Award for Fashion as Art. In 1989, he opened the first Geoffrey Beene retail boutique on Fifth Avenue. Beene's clients included Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, Nancy Reagan, Faye Dunaway and Glenn Close. Beene was known as both an innovator and a teacher. Several of his former apprentices, Kay Unger, Alber Elbaz and Doo Ri Chung are now successful fashion designers, thanks to his early guidance in their respective careers. Beene died on September 28, 2004, due to complications (pneumonia) from cancer at age 77. His career in fashion design spanned over 40 years. In honor of Beene's fashion legacy, the Council of Fashion Designers of America created the annual Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement award in 1984.
