What a Fink


Original, that is. Designed by Frances Duehren. I don't really know much about her, other than she was the president the Society of New York Dress Designers, and for good reason. She created beautiful wedding dresses.

The only other thing I know is that Frances' husband died in 1952. Apparently grief became her, because she became an internationally known wedding dress designer.

  2. When I think of my gorgeous 1960 wedding dress (made by my mother for my sister's 1955 wedding) I want to weep for today's brides in their strapless, over exposed, unfeminine designs.

  3. I have a wedding dress from 1993 that I cannot find the designer for. I was told at the time it was a Pink Fink due to the tiny pink roses throughout the italian lace on the dress. I have pictures of the roses and lace...if anyone can help me find out who the designer is I'd be very grateful and would be happy to send you pictures. dkn14@comcast.net
