Harper Greer is a fictional fashion designer created by Terry Kiskaddon in 1978. She was searching for a name for her new company because she needed to have a label to put in the all the chic styles she was designing. So she went to the library and checked out a baby name book! She was really fascinated with art deco at the time and choose a couple of names that evoked that era. Ta da! Harper Greer was born.
