The Koret of California records document the fashion history of the company, as represented in its rich collection of photographs, portfolios, and advertisements - all of which illustrate the cultural impact and longevity of the company in the fashion industry.
In 1938, Joseph and Stephanie Koret founded Koret of California, a women's apparel company, in San Francisco, California. Joseph was the salesman and promoter for the company, while Stephanie was in charge of the design end of the business. In 1946, the company introduced the Koret Trikskirt, a pleated skirt, which sold several million pieces.
