St. John

St. John Knits started in 1962 when a cute little model named Marie St. John wanted to make enough cash to get married and have a honeymoon in Hawaii with her fiance, Bob Gray. Starting to do the math now? Marie St. John... Bob Gray... Marie Gray for St. John. Inspired to knit by a dress she modelled, she desperately wanted the thing but thought to herself, "I can make this!". So she took her salary that she owned while doing the Carol Merrill type thing on "Queen for a Day" and bought a knitting machine. Bob did the business, Marie oversaw the knitters that they had hired and they got married but they did't get to Hawaii right away. It took about 15 years to turn a real profit and the Grays finaly got their honeymoon. One of the best known names in the industry, St. John knit dresses are like the Colonel's "secret recipe".
