Rother, Helene
Metamora, Michigan

Biography: Helene Rother was a French designer of jewelry and fashion accessories who had fled from Nazi-occupied France with her seven year old daughter Ina in 1942. After briefly working in New York,she moved to Detroit in 1943 at the invitation of General Motors Corporation, which hired her as a designer in its interior styling department. During her four years with General Motors, she attracted considerable attention as the first woman to enter the field of automotive design. In 1947 she opened her own studio in the Fisher building, where she specialized in designs for automotive interiors,furniture, mosaics and stained glass windows. In a letter to a prospective client she explained that her window designs were fabricated in Europe to lessen the cost of material and craftmanship. Her windows included figurative designs, as well as non-figurative designs such as those at Edgewood. Helene Rother's later years were spent at her farm near Metamora, where she enjoyed raising horses.
