About the Shawn Ray Fons Vintage Capsule
“Fons’s references are clear – Hubert de Givenchy, Madeleine Vionnet, Cristobal Balenciaga – and it has been said that he is like the young Christian Dior, another of his inspirations.” – Vogue Magazine, September 1995
Spanning fifteen years from 1994 to 2009, our exclusive Shawn Ray Fons vintage capsule presents a selection of one-of-a-kind original dresses from the designer's family archive, many of which have never been worn.
Handmade in his studio on West 57th Street in Manhattan, each piece showcases Shawn’s couture-style workmanship and is crafted in the most luxurious of silk chiffons, charmeuse and satin.
Presented with special thanks to Glory Fons. More styles available in our NYC store.
