Edith Flagg (1919 – 2014) was a Romanian immigrant to the United States. She started her dress manufacturing business in Los Angeles in 1957. Her clothes were a mid-priced line – dresses for the “Average American Woman.” She specialized in dress and jacket ensembles, and also included casual dresses in the five lines she produced each year. The label lasted at least into the 1970s.
Starting in 2008, Edith Flagg appeared on_ Million Dollar Listing_, a television reality program starring her grandson. On the program “Granny Edith” gave her grandson, Josh Flagg, business advice and became something of a pop culture heroine.
