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.
