Vintage semi-convergences with Bonnie Cashin and Princess Leia

This is the all-star version of vintage convergences, although both are mere semi-convergences. First, the great designer Bonnie Cashin shown in her studio in 1964, wearing her own cashmere separates produced by Ballantyne of Peebles. The similar outfit from my online store is by Bonnie Cashin as well, probably from the same year:

Sorry, but I can’t look at this 1940s hat by New York Creations (recently sold) and not see Princess Leia’s iconic hairstyle.

I told you these were semi-convergences! 

Many more vintage convergences here.
