HATTIE CARNEGIE EVENING DRESS, 1950’s Carnegie starting working at Macy’s department store at age 15. That, as they say, is where it all began. She was no awkward tween wallflower, and the youngster felt confident enough to weigh in on a window display of a black, beaded evening gown, suggesting to the fitter that it needed a white fur collar and cuffs. The dress sold fabulously well with the Carnegie touch. And so, a fashion prodigy was born.
