Biography

American designer whose fashions were favored by First Lady Nancy Reagan. He designed only for a wealthy clientele, preferably size six-to-ten. A maverick of the industry, Galanos was the first major designer who put out a line that totally emphasized mini-skirts. A perfectionist in his attention to detail, his work is considered the equal of any Parisian couturier.

Galanos entered Hollywood design in 1946 before becoming a Paris trainee the following year. Becoming a one-man businessman, he founded Galanos Originals in Beverly Hills in 1951 on a borrowed $200. Within three years, his first New York show was a spectacular success and he received the coveted Coty "Winnie" Award on 10/10/1954. He was also given the Neiman-Marcus Fashion Excellence Award. In 1959, Galanos was elected to the Coty Hall of Fame.
