Walter Teitelbaum, Leo Boren and Howard Steel, founded in the fifties the Creators Studios, a New York City Seventh Avenue fashion business.

Their motto was “Not yesterday’s but tomorrow’s fashions today”, they designed clothes from the late 50s to the early 80s, selling them to brands that wanted to keep up with the times or anticipate them. They gathered in over twenty years tens of thousands of sketches, some of which have been donated to the New York Public Library, to scan them and make them freely available online. A total of 1,067 illustrations that give the perfect idea of what were aesthetics, lines, volumes, fantasies and colors predominant styles in the 50’s and 60’s fashion.
