Pistachio green day dress

From its outset Barbara Herrick's label Babs Radon reflected her wish to bring a fresher, younger look to women who, much like herself – independent and industrious – were seeking modern fashionable clothing. For Barbara, fashion represented confidence and self-esteem, qualities which attracted clientele with similar values.
