Inscription.  Stephen Burrows, best known for fluid, body-conscious clothes in bold colors, “stretches a rainbow over the body,” said one admirer. In 1970, he opened a boutique called Stephen Burrows’ World at Henri Bendel, where he sold his famous jersey dresses with rippled “lettuce” hems. Other trademarks include bold color blocking, decorative stitching, and innovative styles in suede and leather. Burrows’ vivacious clothes were featured in the 1973 epochal American fashion show at Versailles.
