Bob Mackie vintage costume jewellery (1978-1987)
Born March 24, 1939 in the city of Monterey Park, California, Robert Gordon Mackie founded his jewelry trademark in partnership with fashion designer Ray Aghayan (July 28, 1928 – October 10, 2011).
Registered in 1978, “Ray Aghayan and Bob Mackie, Inc.” owned several trademarks on production of clothes, perfumes and accessories. In particular, “M” (registered in 1978), BOB MACKIE (1978, 1980, 1985, and 1992), including two jewelry trademarks. Both trademarks are no longer active. In fact, the company produced jewelry for a decade, from 1978 to 1987. Accordingly, any piece of jewelry signed Bob Mackie is a collectible vintage. Noteworthy, since 1980s, the manufacture of costume jewelry took place both in the USA and in China, so the marking includes fancy script “Bob Mackie”, or “Bob Mackie China”
Called “the sultan of sequins”, or “the rajah of rhinestones”, Bob Mackie designed dresses for such American divas, as Cher, Madonna, Tina Turner, Liza Minnelli, and Sharon Stone. He completely invented stage image for Whitney Houston, and in several world tours, she was wearing exclusively Bob Mackie dresses.

Also, Mackie created sparkling and imaginative costume designs for movies, and got several awards. First, for costumes for Diana Ross in “women singing the blues” (1972). Second, for Barbara Streisand outfit in “Funny Lady” (1975). Throughout his stellar career, he has won nine Emmy Awards for his designs.
