Better Bets: "Holiday Ready" Shopping Column

90th Anniversary of Echo Design

New York City’s own Echo Design Group is 90 years young.  The venerable accessories company has always been “ a family affair”, according to chairman Dorothy Hyman Roberts.  Her parents, Theresa and Edgar Hyman, founded the company, then known as Echo Scarves, on their wedding day in 1923. The name “Echo” is an acronym for Edgar C. Hyman & Co.

To commemorate this important milestone for Echo Design, Lord & Taylor recently hosted an event in their Fifth Avenue store, featuring In Style Magazine’s editor-at-large, Hal Rubenstein.  Customers were able to view some of Echo’s iconic scarf designs, which were on display, while shopping for some of their latest styles, with the assistance of Rubenstein and members of the Roberts family.  The Painted Stripes Silk Wrap (pictured) comes in three color combinations and is 100% silk on one side and 100% rayon on the other.

Available at: http://www.echodesign.com  $128.00

Share the Warmth with Echo Design this holiday season.  Every time a pair of gloves, a hat or a muffler is purchased from Nov. 11th to Dec.1st, the company will donate 2 comparable items to those in need through Fashion Delivers.
