Painted Jackets Inspired by Victoria & Albert Museum Jacket Collections

Painted Peacock Jacket rear

Jane Wilson Marquis was inspired to create this Painted Jacket collection after visiting the Embroided Jacket Collection at the VIctoria & Albert Museum in London. The jackets are made out of cotton muslin. The paintings on the jacket were done by Australian artist and fashion designer Paul Cormack who is based in Miami.

Interview on WAG Magazine – A Particular Point of View


Involved in the worlds of dance, theater, fashion and antiques in England, Wilson-Marquis came to New York to dance, eventually settling fully into the world of fashion.

In the late 1970s, she partnered with Cora Hysinger to form Cora & Jane, headquartered in a SoHo salon that produced distinctive hand-beaded eveningwear.

“We had eight Italian ladies working for us,” Wilson-Marquis says of the operation that would outfit the likes of Diana Ross and be featured in publications ranging from Harper’s Bazaar to Women’s Wear Daily.

The collection, she adds, “sold to Saks, Barneys, Bergdorf, the whole thing.”

Though they remained friends, Wilson-Marquis says the creative team would eventually split and she went on to a namesake design firm on the Upper East Side.

“We went from black beading to white dresses,” she says of her transition into the wedding market.
