Interactive: Velvet Suit, by Mr Fish, about 1967
Michael Fish opened his Clifford Street tailor's shop in 1966, having built up his reputation as the designer who brought traditional hosier Turnbull & Asser up to date with fitted shirts and kipper ties. The interior designer David Mlinaric was the owner of this flamboyant suit. He acquired the cloth from American furniture fabric manufacturer Hexter.
