Jean Varon ‘The Avengers’ Collection: 1965 Designer Vintage Video

Jean Varon is a name that is often omitted from the roll call of 60’s and 70’s fashion designers, but his dress designs are varied and inspired. He designed costumes for Diana Rigg in ‘The Avengers’ and he’s thought to be the true inventor of the mini-skirt.

Jean Varon vintage dresses are rare, but I have a few that are in mint condition in my personal collection, and I’ll post about them in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here’s a little known 1965 Pathe Film launching the Jean Varon ‘Dressed to Kill’ collection for ‘The Avengers’, complete with typical 60’s commentary – and early unnecessary canine couture!
