Anne Fogarty started her career in 1939 working as a model working for Harvey Berin on Seventh 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.

Fogarty's clothes were easy to wear, practical, and made with casual fabrics - following the American sportswear tradition. She ran her own label from 1962 to 1974. Fogarty won several awards for her design work during her career including a Merit Award from Mademoiselle magazine, a Bonwit Teller award, a special Coty Award and a Neiman Marcus Fashion Award from the Philadelphia Fashion Group. In 1955 she received an honor from the International Silk Association and in 1957, won a Cotton Fashion Award. Despite closing her business, Fogarty worked as a freelance designer up to her death with her last collection created for Shariella Fashions in 1980. 

In 1959, Fogarty published a style manual, Wife Dressing: The Fine Art of Being a Well-Dressed Wife, which emphasized femininity, neatness, and always being suitably dressed as desirable qualities. It has since become a key resource for designers and fashion historians looking to explore the 1950s ideology of ultra-feminine dressing.
