Designer Daniel Kasoff worked hard to achieve his professional standing. In 1948 he opened his own business and in 1950 was joined by son, Larry. The brand name "Florenza" was for Dan's wife, Florence. Only Kasoff original creations were so marked, with destinations as Saks 5th Avenue, Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdale's. The company closed in 1980.
