Silk Painters in Fashion! Jackie Peters Cully

This amazing woman started her print design studio in the Garment District of New York City. As a black woman in the 1970s she faced a lot of adversity but because of her perseverance, and pure talent - she became an incredibly successful Textile Stylist. It was because she created prints on silk which looked far more representative of the actual print on the final production fabric. Prior to this method, prints were designed as drawings on paper.
