Anne Fogarty (1919-1980) was an American fashion designer, who was noted for her understated, ladylike designs that were accessible to American women on a limited income. She started out as a model in New York in 1939, working for Harvey Berin on 7th Avenue before studying fashion design. She eventually secured a full-time design job in 1948, and became well-known for full-skirted designs with fitted bodices, inspired by Dior's New Look. Her clothes were easy to wear, practical, and made with casual fabrics. She ran her own label from 1962 to 1974. Her dresses commonly had fitted bodices and full skirts with crinolines, but after 1956, her look narrowed somewhat, with longer, straighter skirts. Fogarty began doing designs exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue in 1957.
