Hattie Carnegie was a Viennese-born fashion entrepreneur who introduced many great Parisian Haute Couture names to her NYC clientele in the 1920s to 1950s, including Chanel and Vionnet. Her eponymous label offered both made-to-measure as well as high end ready-to-wear, decades before luxury brands offered secondary lines. This early 1950s dress was sold through Marshall Field & Company. These dresses were popular with icons like Joan Crawford and the Duchess of Windsor. Carnegie created quite the lifestyle brand - she offered everything from costume jewelry to chocolate. Just don't get chocolate on this pink confection please!
