Fred Segal’s became known as a high-end fashion boutique with a young and modern atmosphere. The stores attract customers, including the Beatles, Elvis, Diana Ross, Jackson Five, Nicole Kidman and Jefferson Plane, among many others.
When Segal opened his store in West Hollywood, 85 percent of the inventory in the 350-square-foot store was blue. Later, in a 700-square-foot store on Santa Monica Boulevard, Segal’s fashion uniform was a big hit. This led to Melrose’s jeans shop on Crescent Heights in 1960 in the heyday of this strip and soon created the first Jeans Bar. Fred Seagal’s denim for men and women sold for $ 19.95, when jeans were usually $ 3.

There were two locations of Fred Segal, founded by Segal, and both have a number of self-owned boutiques. The two stores are not connected, although they use the same logo and have the same annual sales, but each has a different taste. Melrose’s location was run by Segal’s nephew, Ron Herman, while the other was in Santa Monica.
Segal is survived by five children, 10 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, his wife Tina and her two children and a grandson. Segal’s family is asking the mourners to consider donating to the Segal Family – United World Foundation.
