    Good Evening from Rutledge, Georgia! I am the very proud owner of a Hattie Carnegie dress. Black , long sleeves and a black velvet and beaded "swish" from the neckline to the hem. Gorgeous! Anywho, I am unfamiliar with the label. It is sewn to a side seam inside the skirt, almost at the hem. It is a white background with dark blue stitching that reads, "Hattie Carnegie, The Fair, Fort Worth". I do not find this label in the resource page so I was wondering if there was anyone out there with information about where this dress may have come from? I would greatly appreciate any assistance with this search. Thank you very much in advance!

    Rachel, you wrote such a fabulous description of the dress, that now I'm dying to see it, lol.

    I'm sure folks will want to see a pic of the dress and the label, so if you can, please post them here.

    The Fair was a locally-owned small chain of department stores in Texas, including locations in Fort Worth. Higher end department stores often had their name put on the designer ready-to-wear label. I've had several dresses by the designer Irene which also had Bullocks Wilshire on the label.
