History of Style: Amelia Earhart

Looking back at some photos of American aviator Amelia Earhart shows that she was a fashionable and glamorous woman. Tall and slender she wore designs by designer Elsa Schiaparelli and was always conscious of her image when flying and when out on the town.

Amelia demonstrated her entrepreneurial streak by debuted her clothing line in 1934 know as "Amelia Earhart Fashions". Her first creation was a flying suit with loose trousers, a zipper top and big pockets. In addition to her work as a designer, she also appeared in fashion spreads in Vogue and served as an editor at Cosmopolitan. Quite an interesting lady!
