Don Loper was the fashion designer in the 1955 episode of "I Love Lucy", "The Fashion Show".
In California, Lucy decides she just must have a Don Loper dress. Ricky reluctantly agrees to give her $100 but Loper's
designs run $500. With typical Lucy antics and laughs along the way, Loper tells Lucy she can have any design for free if she models
in the charity fashion show featuring celebrity wives. A badly sun burned Lucy must model a scratchy tweed suit but does
indeed get her Don Loper dress at the end of the episode.
