About Marilyn

Born in New York City, Marilyn was exposed to fashion at an early age.  As a child she watched her grandmother create and sew clothes and, at the age of 8, was given a fashion design kit by her mother.

She worked for the William Morris Agency (NY) reporting directly to the head of the Motion Picture Dept and, as an agent, she gained professional high level exposure to, and hands-on experience in, all aspects of the entertainment business including theatre, music, TV and motion pictures. When the New York motion picture dept was disbanded in 1987 she relocated to Los Angeles and took the opportunity to become involved in another of her primary passions ... fashion.

For the past 15 years Marilyn Glass has been a prominent dealer in high-style high-end couture vintage and modern designer fashion. Her clientele includes major museums, socialites throughout the U.S. and overseas, Hollywood stylists and celebrities. She specializes in dramatic eveningwear and couture fashions by major designers such as Charles James, Madame Gres, Fortuny, Adrian, Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, Valentino, Galliano, Christian Lacroix, etc.

Marilyn is known to have a keen and discerning eye for high fashion and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of fashion and high fashion designers, from the early 1900's right through today.

She is a longtime member of the Costume Society of America.

She attracts many of her current high-end private clients via personal contacts, ebay, google and her web site (MarilynGlass.com).
