She famously brought polyester to America after finding the fabric in Switzerland. Throughout it's nearly 50 years, the line was well known for its popular dresses. Both Edith and her husband wrote articles and editorials for Women's Wear Daily and California Apparel News. They also co-authored a weekly column called, "By the Way". Additionally, both she and her husband were members of the Advisory Board of Directors of Manufacturers Bank. She has recently returned to public attention, as her grandson, Josh Flagg, is currently featured on the reality series, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles.
