The same may be said for the woman who designed it. The Romanian-born fashion designer launched her business in 1956 in California, and was the first person to import polyester in mass quantities to the United States. She is a Holocaust survivor, speaks multiple languages, and is a philanthropist - not to mention her legacy is still going strong at the age of 93!
To say I'm proud to wear this piece is nothing short of an understatement. I only hope to glean a mere ounce of Ms. Flagg's chutzpah when I wear her handiwork ... and hope I am still actively giving back to my community when I'm 93!
