Vaughn Terry created Prince’s signature look in the Purple Rain era. Those ruffles and flares and three-inch heels influenced a generation. Vaughn dressed Sheila E., Vanity 6, and other members of the Prince nation. This gig launched Vaughn’s career as a costume designer for the likes of Earth, Wind, and Fire and the Temptations, as well. Vaughn, an O-G from Gary, Indiana, parlayed his considerable talents into becoming a “designers’ designer” for Norma Kamali, Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta, J. Mendel, Tahari, and many, many others.
