• Adele Simpson born 1903 December 8, 2016


    Adele Simpson was a fashion designer whose influence continued for nearly five decades. At 21 she completed her design curriculum at the Pratt Institute. She became head designer for Ben Girshel, which was a prominent 7th Avenue manufacturer. Some years later she began work for Mary Lee, a business also based on 7th Avenue.
    She introduced her medium-priced line of clothing in New York in 1949. She adapted French couture and presented it with an American ready-to-wear translation. Also in 1949, Simpson bought Mary Lee and renamed the company Adele Simpson.
