Carlye Dress Corporation was formed in 1938 in St. Louis, Missouri. The owner was Corinne Fuller Glaser who came from a St. Louis retailing family. Carlye was one of the great junior dress houses located in the city that was noted for its junior wear industry. From 1938 through 1945, the head designer at Carlye was Marion McCoy. When McCoy left in 1945 to form her own company, Louise Mulligan became the head designer at Carlye. Sometime before 1967, Carlye was bought by clothing manufacturing giant Leslie Fay and was merged into their existing lines.
