After discovering the brand on a shopping trip with her granddaughter, 87-year-old New Yorker,
Ellen Langner has become a true RT devotee. “The clothes make me feel like I’m looking as good as I can look,” she says.
With an entrepreneurial spirit that echoes Rebecca’s own career, Ellen
launched an interior design business in the eighties that’s still going strong today. Below she shares her RT story about the sparkly dress she wore for her 85th birthday.
CHAPTER 8: ELLEN LANGNER
The RT dress fit for a fabulous party...
“My children were giving me a dinner party for my
85th birthday, and I knew I wanted to wear something really special. I had bought this dress about a year before and I had never worn it. It was the perfect dress to celebrate in.”
On lessons she’s learned along the way… “You can’t ever take your eye off the road. You always have to keep up with everything.”
On her perfect day…
“A summer day in Wainscott with my family and my grandpug Tillie. Happy to sit outside
- just reading, relaxing and enjoying their company."
On her favorite part about being a woman…
“I think when I was younger, I started out trying to prove myself, but I guess
the best part now is that I did that."
On how she discovered the brand…
“The first time I was in Rebecca Taylor, I was with
my granddaughter, Caroline, and she was shopping
there. While she was trying clothes on, I found a
coat that I fell in love with. I bought it and I still
wear it to this day. After that, I became a regular.”
