At 19, he founded Fred Perlberg Originals, know for moderate-priced dance dresses that young women wore to proms and weddings. His earlier gowns from the late 30’s and early 40’s were used for bridesmaid and rumor has it wedding gowns. His clothes were sold in major stores throughout the United States and Canada. Not much is seen of his earlier work up until about 1935 when he presented the first of his heavy high sheen satin gowns better known as liquid satin.
