Ben Barrack (1906-1996) was the owner of a mid-priced Seventh Avenue fashion house that specialized in petites. He got started in the fashion business by working in retail, but by the 1940s he had started his manufacturing venture. Barrack was a charter member of the New York Dress Institute, which was formed in 1940. His wife, Florence, was the designer at Ben Barrack until 1969.
