Hattie Carnegie was born in Vienna, Austria in 1886 and emigrated to the United States at the age of 6. In the early 1900's, Carnegie and Rose Roth opened several dress and hat shops in New York City. Carnegie designed hats while Roth sewed dresses. Success in retail led to her founding her own company, Hattie Carnegie, Inc. Her company designed and manufactured the jewelry that complimented the dresses. Carnegie did not follow fine trends, hers were original creations. Her creations were always expensive. Joan Crawford was known to wear much of Hattie Carnegie's pieces.
