Biography
Bonnie Cashin was born on Sept. 28, 1908 (published dates vary) in Fresno, California. While still a teenager, she received her first professional assignment for the producers of the Fanchon and Marco dance troupe. Moving with the troupe to New York, circa 1934, Cashin began designing for stage shows at the Roxy Theatre. Around 1937, she became head designer for Adler & Adler, a New York City coat and suit manufacturer. Cashin went back to California in 1943, where she worked until 1949 on some 60 Twentieth Century-Fox motion pictures. Cashin returned to fashion design around 1950, becoming one of America's most influential designers and winning numerous awards. She died while undergoing open heart surgery at New York University Hospital, New York City, on Feb. 3, 2000.
