Zelda was a boutique label producing women’s garments beginning in 1982, and was sold in finer department stores like Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Avenue.
The brand had a vintage aesthetic that sought to recreate the detail and fine tailoring of 1940’s-era garments, particularly suiting. Made of rayon crepe with great attention to detail, Zelda’s signature suit style featured a fitted jacket embellished with soutache, beading or ribbon work – rivaling the quality and character of the vintage originals. Sold as separates, with a skirt or pants option to go with the matching jacket, Zelda suits were coveted by professional women seeking non-cookie-cutter attire for the office.
Zelda ceased production in 1998.
