Unknown Maker (, - present)

Hulitar was famous for his luxurious cocktail and evening dresses. In 1949, The New York Times described Hulitar as the most gifted designer on the fashion horizon. For two decades, he was the exclusive designer and head of the women's dress division of the high-end department store Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. He retired in 1964, only to begin a second career as a painter, a building preservationist and a patron of the arts.
