Geoffrey Beene cotton dress made with an exclusive Gandini silkscreened print.

Mr. Beene often would look for unusual cotton prints for his spring/summer offerings. This one, I think, is from Gandini Tessuti Alta Moda, a fabric supplier to many of the European couturiers. Suzy Gandini’s offices are in Milan; Mr. Beene bought fabric from them for many many years. Gandini is not a mill, but gets exclusive fabric designs from fine mills from Europe. While this fabric was indeed a cotton print, it was printed by hand using a number of passes of silkscreen.Russell Nardozza, Senior Vice President of Geoffrey Beene, LLC
