Earlene Moore

Earlene Moore, a 90-year-old bra fitter at Saks Fifth Avenue, got into the business in 1939 when the downtown stretch of Congress Avenue was full of department stores.

She opened her own lingerie shop in 1971 and fit Texas' political and social elite for over 20 years. Earlene closed her shop on Jefferson Square in 1995 and went into semi-retirement. She was bored though, and when Saks offered her a job in 1997 she was back in business.
