Irene Lentz (also known as Irene Gibbons), was a costume designer and my great-aunt. Her work as a successful clothing designer in Los Angeles led to her long career as a costume designer for many great films in Hollywood.. until her death in 1962.
There is a lot more information about my great-aunt Irene on the wide world web these days, which is delightful to see, though occasionally misguided.
I have gotten know several members of my extended family through articles about Irene, as well as friends, authors and fans (some of whom have posted here before) who have an interest in Irene and her work. Through the sharing of information and years of devoted research (by authors) on Irene, I hope to bring to you the most factual information available, links to sites where Irene’s fashion is featured, as well as possibly some photos you may not have seen before. I have several items myself I need to get together and scan, but welcome others to share as well.by
