Charles Nolan

Charles Nolan (June 5, 1957 – January 30, 2011 in New York City, New York) was an American fashion designer. He was the fifth in a family of nine children and was raised in the New City borough of Brooklyn and the New York City suburb of Massapequa, Long Island.  Nolan graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology and then went onto work for the designers Frank Tignino and Bill Haire. Subsequent to those assignments he designed licenced products for Bill Blass and Christian Dior, before assuming leading roles as the Ellen Tracy and Anne Klein concerns.  Nolan was the lead designer at Anne Klein from 2001 until 2003, when he resigned to volunteer for the Howard Dean 2004 presidential campaign. After the aforementioned campaign abruptly ended he launched his own signature line in 2004. The line was available only at his own store on Gansevoort Street in the New York City borough of Manhattan and through an exclusive deal at Saks Fifth Avenue.  Nolan died of cancer of the head and neck on January 30, 2011 at the age of 53. He was the partner of the financial writer and Democratic National Committee treasurer, Andrew Tobias.
