Anne Fogarty (1919-1980) started her design career in 1948 working for Youth Guild. In 1950, she went to work for Margot, Inc. 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.
