Claire McCardle dress made using Picasso's "fish print" from Fuller Fabric's Modern Masters series from 1955. The idea was to bring modern art to the average person, Fuller Fabric worked with Chagall, Miro and Picasso to create art to wear fabrics that were sold in mass, as promotion Claire McCardle was asked to make a collection. Such interesting history, a true treasure for any vintage collection.
