Charles Cross Northrup (May 19, 1914 - January 24, 1989) opened a couture salon on Sunset Boulevard in 1946 with business and life partner Don Loper. They lived in Beverly Hills “in a big mansion surrounded by seven servants.” According to an article in AP, December 1958, “It is the only home in Beverly Hills,” says Loper, “with two swimming pools –– one for Chuck and me and the other for the staff.”

Since Loper's death in 1972 Northrup was head of the well-known clothing and design firm.

Northrup died in Los Angeles on January 24, 1989, of respiratory complications.
