History

Larry Aldrich was born in 1906 to Russian immigrant parents in New York. In 1924, he attended Columbia college to earn a law degree but decided to pursue fashion after a summer job in the garment district. Aldrich opened his first fashion firm in 1927 but his name did not appear on the clothing label until the 1940s. He stayed in business until 1966 when he sold his business. After retiring, he focused solely on art collecting, a hobby of his since 1937. Aldrich founded the Aldrich Museum for Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, CT. in 1967. Aldrich died in 2001 at the age of 95. During his career in fashion, Aldrich acted as president of the New York Couture Group.
