Hattie Carnegie 1939-1979
She was born in Vienna, Austria-Hungary, as Henrietta Kanengeiser, changed her name to Hattie Carnegie in her 20's. Hattie began her career as a milliner, opening her first shop 'Carnegie-Ladies Hatter', in New York in 1909. Carnegie became a hugely successful fashion and jewelry designer; she launched her jewelry line in 1939. In 1942, 'Life Magazine' made Hattie Designer of the Year. The stars of the day such as Tallulah Bankhead, Norma Shearer, and Joan Crawford all adored her fashion and jewelry designs. In 1952, Hattie was awarded The Congressional Medal of Freedom, for her WAC (Women's Army Corps) uniform design. Notably, Kenneth Jay Lane designed for Carnegie before leaving to launch his own brand in the 1960's. Hattie died in 1956 but the company carried on and was purchased by the Chromology American Corporation in 1976 and continued until 1979.

  • I was so happy to be able to get that beautiful bracelet of Kenneth Lane. I already had two other items by him bought at his shop at Burlington Arcade in London. And it arrived in pristine condition.
