Fashion Walk of Fame

One of the most important fashion designers of the 20th Century, Claire McCardell helped create "The American Look." McCardell pioneered the American style of casual sportswear. Inspired by activewear and menswear, she made practical, comfortable and wearable clothes. She was dedicated to the democratization of fashion. As she once said, "I belong to a mass production country where any of us, all of us, deserve the right to good fashion."
