Albert Nipon was a Philadelphia-based manufacturer who dominated the dress market during the early 1980's.  Headed by husband and wife Albert and Pearl Nipon, the pair eventually built a $60 million a year fashion empire.  Albert cited his wife as the secret to their success: "She has a feel for what young career women would like their clothes to be."
