Color was the keynote back then in the fashion world. And color is what Mr. Dino fashions is all about. Max Cohen, who started Mr. Dino in the early 1960’s, brought his engineering know-how into textiles and developed a silk-screen printing process for fabric which produced vivid shades that were worked into the most intricate designs.
Mr. Dino, referred to as “The poor man’s Pucci”, was manufactured in Miami employing many Cuban refugees where Cohen turned them from laborers into skilled technicians.
Print is in shades of green, pink, white, purple, blue, yellow, and black.
Left side seam 4.5” slit. Back zipper closure with one hook and loop closure at the top.
