*BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE ‘60s / 70’s DESIGNER TACHI CASTILLO FROM MEXICO PIN TUCKS & SATIN RIBBON JACKET
A BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE ‘60s / 70s DESIGNER JACKET BY TACHI CASTILLO FROM MEXICO KNOWN FOR HER MEXICAN WEDDING DRESSES, FULL MEXICAN SKIRTS, PEASANT BLOUSES PLUS JACKETS ADORNED WITH STRIPS OF SATIN RIBBONS.
ACCORDING TO THE VINTAGE FASHION GUILD, SHE DRESSED HOLLYWOOD STARS SUCH AS LANA TURNER & BRIGITTE BARDOT AND OTHER WELL-KNOWN PEOPLE SUCH AS PRINCESS ANNE AND FRIDA KAHLO. (MY THANKS TO THE VINTAGE FASHION GUILD FOR THIS INFORMATION.)
THE JACKET IS EXTREMELY WELL MADE WITH PIN TUCKS & VARIOUS SATIN RIBBONS - VERY LARGE FULL SLEEVES WITH A BIT OF ELASTIC AT THE ENDS - THE COLOR OF THE RED IS A DEEP RICH RED WHICH WAS HARD TO PHOTOGRAPH - NOT ORANGE TONES AS IN SOME PHOTOS BUT DEEP RED & A PRETTIER SHADE THAN SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS - SHOULDER PADS FOR SHAPING - FULLY LINED - LOOKS AS THOUGH IT WAS WORN VERY LITTLE
VERY EXPENSIVE LOOKING & I AM SURE THAT IT WAS - PERFECT WITH SLACKS, A SKIRT OR WITH A DRESS

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
