Stan Herman (b. 1932) worked as a comedian and as a singer before he got into fashion design. He worked at various firms in New York and in 1959 became the designer at Mr. Mort. At Mr. Mort in the 1960s Herman’s designs were on the cutting edge of fashion — he was one of the first to show dresses over pants.
But early in the 1970s Stan Herman left Mr. Mort and opened a design studio, where he produced not only his own label, but where he also did freelance work. He designed dresses for department stores and lingerie for Van Raalte. He also did work uniforms for such diverse groups as United Airlines and McDonalds. In the late 1990s, he took his at-home clothing line to TV retailer QVC, where his name again became a household word.
