The Story Behind The Iconic Perette Designs


Ushered into popularity by Dior in 1947, the fit and flared silhouette with long sweeping skirts, fitted waists, and rounded shoulders quickly became the new feminine standard.

Thanks to a very special arrangement between Sidney Blauner, the owner of the Suzy Perette label, and the house of Christian Dior, the coveted Parisienne designs that were once daydreams, became available to American women under name Suzy Perette.

The styles Perette is known for such as the fitted waist and flared skirt, the slim sheath or “wiggle” silhouette, and classic shirt and day dresses are now American classics. Since the brand stretched decades from the late 1940’s to the early 1970’s, the collection has also encompassed mid century shifts and a little bohemian flare. The Suzy Perette legacy has been carried on by vintage enthusiasts worldwide and the iconic Perette designs remain in high demand to this day.


We at Suzy Perette fell in love with the historic brand and its iconic styles. We hope to honor the Suzy Perette brand by bringing its timeless designs to the modern American woman. Our focus is elegant, simple designs with a bit of Parisian chic that can carry you from day to night with ease and grace. We have added some modern touches to bring her forward. We try to imagine where she has been, who she is today, and where she is going.
