Dorothy Zbornak inspires Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang to W Magazine:

“….the bags are named after TV show characters. We have the Brenda and Kelly [90210], the Dorothy shopper [The Golden Girls] and the Trudy [Miami Vice]. They’re all the shows that used to be on TV when I was growing up.”

Dorothy Zbornak (nee Petrillo), portrayed by the late Beatrice Arthur, is a fictional character from the TV series The Golden Girls.

On “The Golden Girls” the character Dorothy Zbornak’s signature shoe was a flat suede scrunch boot, and she carried an oversize hobo bag – Although Bea Arthur has passed away, she continues to inspire Alexander Wang.
