Madame Grès silk chiffon evening dress, ca.1950, Ann Bonfoey Taylor collection, Phoenix Art Museum.

BRIEF ABOUT:  The collection, selected by Art and Antiques magazine as one of the top 100 museum gifts of 2008, showcases Ann Bonfoey Taylor’s (1910–2007) custom-made wardrobe of day and evening wear that Taylor assembled from the post–World War II era through the 1970s as well as skiwear designs and sportswear, including accessories by Hermés, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Henry Maxwell.

     Taylor created a life that personifies what an American woman can be, whether an Olympic skier, championship tennis player, licensed pilot, successful skiwear designer or skilled sportswoman.
