Americana Luxury is a network of websites and projects by Victoria Stowe created to promote American heritage brands, their history and influence on global fashion trends.
Their legacy has been connected to the 20th century immigration, when the biggest American designer names had come from Europe to the United States in pursuit of their American dream. They include Judith Leiber (Hungary), Charles Hahn and Lucille Hahn of Lucille de Paris (France), Martin Van Schaak (France), Nettie Rosenstein (Austria), Henry Cross of Mark Cross (Ireland), Ludwig Lederer of Lederer de Paris (Austria), and others.
