    Mr Mort

    Mr. Mort was founded in 1952 by Mortimer Goldman. The ready-to-wear company was based on 7th Avenue, New York and produced mid-priced but very fashionable dresses. Stan Herman, who had worked as a designer at various other clothing companies, was appointed the head designer at Mr. Mort in 1959. Herman’s designs were at the cutting edge of fashion - he was one of the first to show dresses over pants. During his career, Herman won three Coty Fashion Awards and was also awarded the Geoffrey Beane Lifetime Achievement Award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Mr Mort ceased production in the early 1980s. All of the Mr Mort dresses I have owned have been very striking in their design and utilised high quality heavy cotton material.

      

    Comment

    The Mr Mort dress is in excellent condition for its age - it doesn't appear to have been worn. The fabric is strong and crisp and the construction is without blemish.

    Comment

    This dress presents beautifully. It is hard to depict in the photographs but there are a number of clear rhinestone beads paced at strategic intervals on the dress front and back. These are designed to catch the light with movement and they really do! In terms of condition, the dress material is nice and crisp and is unfaded. The only tiny blemish is that there was some unravelling of the seam above the zipper ( a common issue with side closures) and someone has hand sewn the seam back up - really nothing major.

    Shown with a crinoline, belt and ribbon for demonstration purposes only.

    Comment

    This dress has had a previous life but nevertheless presents beautifully. As a result, it does display a small amount of wear. There is a slight abrasion on the left side of dress (pictured) also some small colour blemishes here and there and alterations (as shown on side seam in last photograph). In my opinion, the alterations are only noticeable if you look for them, the blemish on the side could be reinforced if required and completely hidden by a ribbon. (For information, the ribbon shown in the photographs hangs on the opposite side of the flaw). Any other minor colour blemishes are hidden by the design and not readily noticed. The price reflects these flaws but it remains a wonderful and spectacular dress.

    Shown with a crinoline and ribbon which are not included.

    Comment

    This vintage dress is in good condition for its age. While close to sixty years old. the dress has no major flaws that I can see only minor blemishes. A little bit of wear and tear is evident including some cracking to the circle paint here and there (a typical occurrence) a tiny bit of yellowing to a couple of the appliques, and a few tiny pin-point catches to the duster on the front bodice ...probably due to snagging of a piece of jewellery. These can be seen by zooming up on the photographs. Other than that, the dress presents beautifully as seen in the photos provided. This is a very versatile dress!!!

    Shown with a crinoline and ribbons which are not included.

    Description

    * 1950s blue, turquoise and lilac floral print on white cotton dress

    * Classic silhouette with a fitted sleeveless bodice

    * Low-cut v-shaped cross over neckline with shelf bust

    * Very full skirt

    * Bodice fully lined in white cotton

    * Glued glitter highlights to floral decorations

    * Label reads "Jackie Morgan"

    Jackie Morgan, California was a dress designer who was active during the 1950s - 1960s. He appears to have been quite passionate about dress design and fabrics, as he conducted numerous fashion parades to showcase not only his latest fashions but also gave talks on current fashion trends and dress materials. He was mainly active in the Los Angeles, Pasadena and Long Beach areas, as well as further north in San Rafael, the county seat of wealthy Marin County. Here, he provided exclusive lines to the local, now defunct, department store Luana’s. One of the special features of this label was the wide range of colourful large print floral cotton dresses that it produced during its heyday. These eye-catching, colourful dresses are hugely popular today.

     

    Comment

    This dress has had a previous life but nevertheless presents beautifully as can be seen. On close inspection, all I can find of note is that there are thin lines of brown glue residue where some of the glitter has worn off but in all honesty they are very thin and blend in with the floral pattern - a very minor flaw in my opinion. Also, a couple of light spots but again nothing to detract from the overall presentation of this beautiful dress. The dress originally had ties to the shoulders that could be added if desired but have since been lost ( had an identical dress previously with the ties in place). I have added some ribbon ties for the photographs that can accompany the dress if desired - I have also taken photographs without the ties to show the various options available.

    Shown with a crinoline and ribbon for presentation purposes only.

    Comment

    The dress is in excellent condition for its age - it doesn't appear to have been worn. The fabric is strong and crisp and the construction is without blemish. The only thing I would suggest is to hang out in the sunlight to refresh the colour.

    Shown with a belt which is not included.

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in excellent condition for its age. The colour is vibrant and the fabric is crisp. While close to sixty years old. the dress has no major flaws that I can see other than the button at the back has broken in half.....I can include a period replacement if desired and the seam at the zipper needs to be re-sewn about an inch. All in all, a very eye-catching dress

    Comment

    This lovely vibrant dress presents beautifully as shown in the photos. No major flaws that I can see - the fabric remains crisp and strong. The only item of note is that the hem appears to have been let down at some point....however, the alteration has not left a line, marks or any pulls in the fabric. The only indicator is that there is minimal turnover at the hem with slight fraying. This beautiful pattern and colours are guaranteed to lift the spirits...:)

    Shown with a crinoline and ribbon, not included. Dress is pinned to the dress form to show shape....apart from the back view which hangs naturally,

    This dress presents beautifully as can be seen without flaws.... it appears to be hardly worn. The fabric is crisp and there are no blemishes to the floral decorations.

    Comment

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in excellent condition for its age - no damage that I can see. I was told it originally belonged to a school teacher and I think it is absolutely the perfect dress for wearing to school - demure, stylish and, of course, the breast pockets are perfect for holding a crayon or two..:)
    Shown with a crinoline which is not included in this listing.

    Jonathan Logan eventually became a collection of fourteen different brands, each geared to a different consumer group.
