George designed and made woman’s clothing for the Hollywood studios, before and after WWII. He had a design school in Hollywood called The Trippon School of Design. His TV show, “Sew What’s New”, was made and aired over a period of about 20 years, starting in 1970. He wrote and published two books in conjunction with the show: “Becoming a Dress Designer: What Every Designer Should Know”, and “Let’s Design, Cut, Sew, and Fit With George W. Trippon”. Both books are rare and difficult to find. His partner James died in 2006. They were together for 64 years — He wrote a book about their life together called “Ode to Jimmie”. He also wrote a book about his childhood called “Pidgeon Hill” both are available from Amazon. George pass New Years Day 2010. RIP George we love you and thanks for being you!
