Scott Barrie was a Florida-born designer who was known for his sexy matte jersey dresses. He arrived in New York in 1962 after studying briefly at the Philadelphia Museum College of Art. His designs were picked up by Bloomingdale’s and Henri Bendel (who also later carried Stephen Burrows) and he opened his first showroom in 1968. In later years, he designed for companies like Krizia and a Japanese company called Kinshido. He died at age 52 in Italy in 1993.
