Amelia Earhart's Fashion Line

Who knew that pioneering aviatrice and female role model Amelia Earhart was also a fashion designer for her own line, Amelia Earhart Fashions?

Earhart began manufacturing her clothing line in 1933 in her suite in New York’s Hotel Seymour. Her work space only included a sewing machine and a mannequin. With the help of a single seamstress, Earhart brought her fashion line to life. Initially debuting at R.H. Macy & Co. in New York, Amelia Earhart Fashions went on to be sold at 30 department stores nationwide.
