AN EYE FOR ELEGANCE

Hosted by SMU’s DeGolyer Library
8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Fondren Library’s Hillcrest Foundation Exhibit Hall

“An Eye for Elegance: Carrie Marcus Neiman and the Woman Who Shaped Neiman Marcus” will explore the life and legacy of a remarkable woman, who with her brother, Herbert Marcus, Sr., and her husband, Al Neiman, founded the iconic luxury department store Neiman Marcus in 1907. The DeGolyer Library exhibit coincides with a new biography, “A Girl Named Carrie,” by Jerrie Marcus Smith. As part of the exhibit’s opening ceremony, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson plans to declare Dec. 2 “Carrie Marcus Neiman Day.”

Through photographs, letters, postcards, telegrams, clippings, magazines, catalogs, sheet music, jewelry, and dresses (on loan from the Texas Fashion Collection at the University of North Texas), Carrie’s career comes to life.

From her birth and girlhood in Louisville, Kentucky, to her move to Dallas, her marriage (and divorce), and her commitment as a working woman, to the success of “The Store,” Carrie Marcus Neiman emerges from the shadows of history. Carrie was indispensable in shaping the Neiman Marcus “look,” her innate good taste in fashion and demand for the finest in fabrics and details helping to create a nationally known store that rivaled those in New York and abroad.

The exhibit will also direct attention to other talented women from the earliest days of Neiman Marcus, including buyer Moira Cullen, first fashion promotions director Kay Kerr, interior designer Eleanor Le Maire, and food director Helen Corbitt, all of whom shaped the fashions and tastes of their clients and society.
