Suzie Zuzek's Archive Found; Textile Artist Behind Lilly Pulitzer

A notice in today's Business of Fashion offers some rare good news: the lost archive of Suzie Zuzek, the designer behind the exuberant, vivacious prints of the Lilly Pulitzer brand, has been rediscovered. 

In 2008, The New York Times reported that the archive of Lilly Pulitzer, the casual sportswear brand that captured the hearts of countless Americans in the '60s and '70s, was lost. According to the paper, the founder Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau herself threw out much of the archive upon her retirement in 1984, making it difficult to date many of her dresses.
