Juel Park: Temptation in Satin

If you ever glazed at Rita Hayworth, Elizabeth Taylor in their lounge wear, silk, satin and lace garments it is a very good chance that you were admiring Juel Park.

Juel was conceived by a vivacious brunette Juel Park in 1929. Originally Park was an aspiring actress but found her calling in creating luxurious pieces of lingerie. Thanks to serendipity (and knowing all the right people), Park managed to create pieces that graced the figures of the most glamorous women; Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, Vivien Leigh, Ava Gardner, Lucille Ball, Grace Kelly, Mae West, Joan Crawford, Barbara Streisand, Rita Hayworth, Katherine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall, Gloria Swanson, Zsa Zsa Gabor and Debbie Reynolds. The last picture with Dita Von Teese, features a Juel Park vintage robe, the lingerie is from her own line Von Follies

Now Park’s grand niece, Suzanne Skaff, is continuing the family legacy so another generation can enjoy the past as well as looking towards the future.
