Nancy Reagan, Gelanos, White House Photo Office via WikipediaPhiladelphia-born fashion designer James Galanos began his career as a general assistant at the New York East 49th Street emporium of Hattie Carnegie. After working in California as a sketch artist, 1951 he created a small collection, Gelanos Originals, which was ordered by Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. He began designing for movies soon thereafter. Famous for his exquisite furs, many of the world's most socially prominent women, including Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Jackie Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, Grace Kelly, Diana Ross, Marlene Dietrich, and Judy Garland were customers.
