Wool blend dress & jacket ensemble

Pamela Nash thanks Gus Fisher for turning her childhood fascination with fashion into a lifetime career in the clothing industry. "As long as I remained the sample size I was fortunate in being able to purchase these at the end of the season ... I had one of the most stunning wardrobes imaginable: Balenciaga, Balmain, Dior and of course El Jay."
