Carole Little and husband Leonard Rabinowitz formed California Fashion Industries in 1975. Their first label was St. Tropez West by Carole Little. The clothing was casual – California cool with a touch of European sophistication. The company grew throughout the 1980s and 1990s, with petites, career and dresses labels added to the original sportswear. The company was sold in 2000.
