Howard Greer, Maison of Haute Couture

Unread post by missdupont » Mon Nov 27, 2017 9:12 am

Greer, who headed Paramount-Famous Players Lasky's Costume Department from 1924-1927, was the first designer to open his own fashion boutique in 1927. At the same time, he still occasionally designed costumes for the screen for clients like Katharine Hepburn, Irene Dunne, and Deanna Durbin.

I have always wondered which gowns did Greer design in THE ANIMAL KINGDOM (1932) and CHRISTOPHER STRONG (1933) since he shared credit with Walter Plunkett in both films. Does anyone know how we can find out?

One of the articles I researched had at least 1 photo from "Christopher Strong," I can attach it tonight. He seemed to design modern day wardrobes in films for some of his favorite clients.

If you search Howard Greer in Lantern, an image of one of the gowns he designed for Hepburn, with her wearing it, appears. Since I don't need to sign up for a photo site to post on Twitter or Facebook, I don't have an account to upload a photo to.
