    * Vintage 1960s ivory net party dress

    * Decorated with multiple rows of iridescent MOP sequins

    * Classic silhouette with cinched slightly dropped waist and full skirt

    * Ivory crepe underskirt with scooped out sleeveless bodice and plunging back

    * Upper bodice lined in sheer organza

    * Cream taffeta lining and working back nylon zipper

    * Label reads Blum's Vogue

    Blum's Vogue

    The dress carries a Blum's Vogue Chicago designer label, a high end designer store. Blum's dressed Chicago's most fashionable women for decades. For forty years, Harry Blum, owner of Blum's Vogue would travel to Paris every season to select the fashions for his store. Blum carried designer notables such as: Dior, Chanel, Balenciaga, Givenchy, and Mme Gres. He would also carry American designer labels such as, Norell, Trigere, Ben Zuckerman, Galanos, Werle, Ceil Chapman, etc. Unfortunately, as this dress only carries the Blum's Vogue label, I cannot be certain of the individual designer.

     

    Condition 

    This outstanding dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age. No major flaws that I can see, but there are some splits to the organza lining underneath the netting at the back of the dress, more than likely hanger damage. The organza lining could be replaced if desired or left as is as the splits cannot be seen from the exterior of the dress.  There are a couple of light marks on the underneath lining material which do not show up at all on the crepe underskirt or net outer skirt. I must highlight the construction of this dress, which is definitely high-end and impeccably finished. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Description

    * High quality mid 1960s Space Age designer dress

    * Fabric features wide strips of pink and blue separated by smaller strips of taupe       and white 

    * Classic mod silhouette with a-line skirt

    * Sleeveless bodice with contrasting pink Peter Pan collar

    * Fully lined in white acetate, serged seams with hand finished hem

    * Back with nylon zipper

    * Label reads Schipara with 100% Trevira

    Trevira Fabric replaced crimplene as the important fabric in the fashion industry for young designers of the late 1960s. It was considered ‘the’ fabric of its time and utilised by top designers all over the world. Due to its versatility, the fabric was perfect for mini shift dresses and A line coats as it was lightweight but with ample body. It also did not deform when wet and dried very quickly. Designers also loved it because of the vivid colours and patterns that could be made using this fabric.

     

    Condition 

    Space age dresses are so unique, featuring bold fashion elements and unusual designs. They are also hard to find. I love this period and the design on this one is a real beauty. Its also in excellent condition for its age. Looks hardly worn, no faults that I can see. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Comment

    This dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains, major fading or holes. The only point to make is that the fabric may not be as vibrant colour as it was originally but the dress presents beautifully and the colouring is consistent. Red ribbon not included. I have since found an ad in the 1960 Spiegel catalog which shows a very similar denim dress with bandana print, however the applique is a rooster rather than the fish which is featured on this dress.

    Toni Todd

    R & M Kaufmann, Inc was inaugurated in Aurora, Illinois during the 1900s. The owners were brothers who produced high quality but moderately priced dresses and sleepwear. They were able to keep prices low by mass producing garments in their own factories.  In fact, their motto was "Only the LOOK is expensive."  Sales grew steadily through the use of full page advertisements in SeventeenMademoiselle and Charm magazines as well as the use of live television commercials on shows such as "Beat the Clock."  The Kaufmann's produced under several labels including the Toni Todd line which specifically targeted younger women.  The company was sold to Russ Togs in 1969.

     

    Condition 

    This is such a lovely dress, with so many design features. The bodice in particular is so flattering. In real life, the dress is a smidge lighter than the photographs show but I found it difficult to colour balance for some reason.  No notable flaws that I can see, apart from the dress might need the cotton thread that forms the hook and eye reinforced. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    DIOR Diorling

    In the late 1960's ,the "Diorling" line was introduced as a ready to wear label for Christian Dior. Named after the popular Dior fragrance launched in 1963, Diorling was created by Jorn Langberg, Artistic Director of Christian Dior London. The Diorling collection was designed in London from the 1960s to 1970s  and sold in upmarket department stores such as Harrods. The Diorling label was tailored to the London customer, but echoed many of the House of Dior's signature looks. Structured, ladylike silhouettes, and classic fabrics like tweed are themes that appear again and again in the collections, interpreted in modern ways.

    Lilli Ann
    This famous American label was registered in 1933 by Adolf Schuman. Fabrics were specially imported from France and Italy, many made expressly for Lilli Ann. These fabrics were bought from mainly small textile companies that were in dire financial straits after the war and in danger of closing. As a result, Schuman was credited with saving many of these from financial ruin and in official recognition for his services was awarded Medals of Honour from both France and Italy.  On the other hand, the Lilli Ann customer knew that their suits, coats and dresses were made of the highest quality, hand-loomed fabric. Lilli Ann was also recognised for its innovative designs and quality construction. The label received the Gold Medal in Fashion Design, America's highest award in fashion. Nowadays, there is very high demand for this label from collectors and fashionistas from around the world. It must be said that this label is one of my all-time favourites as many of my customers know...:)

     

    Comment

    This designer jacket is so modern looking yet made in the late 1950s. It is in excellent condition and free from holes, stains or any discolouration. Not sure whether the buttons are original, but are totally in keeping with the jacket's overall presentation. Cleaned and ready to wear. I have lightened the third photo so you can get a better idea of the detail, the jacket is an inky black in real life.

    Condition 

    This dress is in excellent condition for its age, although it has a couple of minor issues. It is slightly faded but you can only tell by comparing with hidden fabric. You cannot tell at all when worn. There is a tiny alteration at the tip of bodice (shown in last photo) where it was taken in slightly but you would never know. Two tiny pin dot spots  at base of one pocket again hardly noticeable. Front darts partially let out near waist. None of these detract from the presentation or wearability of the dress as you can see from the photos, but nevertheless I have priced it accordingly. Shown with a ribbon belt and crinoline for demonstration purposes only. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Lilli Ann
    This famous American label was registered in 1933 by Adolf Schuman. Fabrics were specially imported from France and Italy, many made expressly for Lilli Ann. These fabrics were bought from mainly small textile companies that were in dire financial straits after the war and in danger of closing. As a result, Schuman was credited with saving many of these from financial ruin and in official recognition for his services was awarded Medals of Honour from both France and Italy.  On the other hand, the Lilli Ann customer knew that their suits, coats and dresses were made of the highest quality, hand-loomed fabric. Lilli Ann was also recognised for its innovative designs and quality construction. The label received the Gold Medal in Fashion Design, America's highest award in fashion. Nowadays, there is very high demand for this label from collectors and fashionistas from around the world. It must be said that this label is one of my all-time favourites as many of my customers know...:)

    Suzy Perette

    The Suzy Perette label was a registered trademark of Lombardy Dress (founded as Lombardy Frocks in 1930) and registered in 1954. A sister label to Suzy Perette was the Gigi Young Fashions label (late fifties to 1966). This label followed the same successful style formula of Suzy Perette but as a less expensive line.

    Suzy Perette was greatly influenced by Parisian fashions, with the silhouette of cinched waist and full skirt extremely popular in the early fifties. In fact, the Suzy Perette label acquired the right to incorporate Christian Dior's designs into their own product range- and this dress is a wonderful example!

    Sears, Roebuck & Company was at one time the largest retailer in the United States, and was both a mail-order company and a chain of stores that sold mid-priced goods.

    The company was founded by Richard W. Sears and Alvah C. Roebuck. They began selling watches and jewelry by mail order in the late 1880s. In 1893, they incorporated as Sears, Roebuck & Company. They were located in Chicago, which would remain the site of their headquarters through the years. By 1894, the Sears, Roebuck catalog was filled with many goods that were needed by the many farm families who had little access to stores. Their pricing strategy and wide selection caused the business to grow very quickly, and within a few years the catalog offered everything from farm equipment to toys. In 1925, Sears, Roebuck & Company opened their first store in Chicago. Within the next few years, Sears, Roebuck stores were scattered across the Mid-west, and were being built across the country. By 1933, there were 400 stores nationwide. During this time period, Sears began to develop their own brands, such as Kenmore appliances. Over the years, Sears clothing lines have included Kerrybrooke, Charmode, Roebucks, King’s Road, and The Fashion Place labels. The name of the stores was shortened to just Sears in the early 1970s, though the official name of the company remained Sears, Roebuck and Company until the 1980s. In 1993 an era ended when Sears stopped producing their catalogues. In 2005, Sears was merged into the K-Mart Corporation.

    Lilli Ann
    This famous American label was registered in 1933 by Adolf Schuman. Fabrics were specially imported from France and Italy, many made expressly for Lilli Ann. These fabrics were bought from mainly small textile companies that were in dire financial straits after the war and in danger of closing. As a result, Schuman was credited with saving many of these from financial ruin and in official recognition for his services was awarded Medals of Honour from both France and Italy.  On the other hand, the Lilli Ann customer knew that their suits, coats and dresses were made of the highest quality, hand-loomed fabric.

     Jeunesse Label

    The Jeunesse Label was owned by Max Blauner of the Lombardy Frocks. Other labels owned by the company were the well-known Suzy Perette  (famous for reproducing Christian Dior designs under licence) and Gigi Young (a sister company producing more mid-priced lines). The up-market New York based Jeunesse label showcased several high-end designers including Jeannene Booher,  

     

    Jeannene Booher

    From the 1960s until  she ended up at Maggy London, Jeannene Booher worked for several large design houses,  as well as featuring her own collections. These included  Jeunesse, Pauline Trigere, Jo Copeland, Arnold Scassi, Adele Simpson and David Morris. It was said that buyers from stores throughout the USA believed her designs were the best they had ever seen and compared her to the likes of Courreges, Gernreich,  Tiffeau and Beene.

    The famous fashion publicist, Eleanor Lambert, wrote in 1970 ” Jeannene is a whiz at tailoring. She blends classic grace and sophistication with her own snappy angular cut, flaring skirts and sense of the waistline.” Though Jeannene Booher’s Maggie London fashions are still pretty plentiful,  it’s rare to find her earlier designs - of which this is a wonderful example.  If you appreciate clean lines, bold graphic prints and timeless style, then this is certainly a desirable label to look out for when hunting for vintage designer clothing of the Mod period.

    Lilli Ann
    This famous American label was registered in 1933 by Adolf Schuman. Fabrics were specially imported from France and Italy, many made expressly for Lilli Ann. These fabrics were bought from mainly small textile companies that were in dire financial straits after the war and in danger of closing. As a result, Schuman was credited with saving many of these from financial ruin and in official recognition for his services was awarded Medals of Honour from both France and Italy.  On the other hand, the Lilli Ann customer knew that their suits, coats and dresses were made of the highest quality, hand-loomed fabric. Lilli Ann was also recognised for its innovative designs and quality construction. The label received the Gold Medal in Fashion Design, America's highest award in fashion. Nowadays, there is very high demand for this label from collectors and fashionistas from around the world. It must be said that this label is one of my all-time favourites as many of my customers know...:)

     

    Comment

    This vintage coat is beautifully tailored and in great condition for its age. It has been used but does not appear to have any major issues. I did notice out in the sunlight a couple of small patches where the mohair long hairs were missing. They are difficult to spot and the person I purchased it from and even myself , when inspecting it for the initial listing, completely overlooked them. The wool fabric is fine it’s just the long strands of mohair that are missing.  Both areas are tiny no bigger than an eraser head. Not a moth hole - no holes at all but could have been a surface graze which only damaged the long wispy bits. Anyway as I said barely noticeable. If you would like a photo of the area I am happy to oblige . Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Comment

    This vintage outfit has been carefully looked after and is in excellent condition for its age. Remember this dress is over sixty years old but has no noticeable flaws that I can see. Did find slight fade to lining but absolutely no fading to exterior. The fabric sheen is wonderful.

    This famous American label was registered in 1933 by Adolf Schuman. Fabrics were specially imported from France and Italy, many made expressly for Lilli Ann. These fabrics were bought from mainly small textile companies that were in dire financial straits after the war and in danger of closing. As a result, Schuman was credited with saving many of these from financial ruin and in official recognition for his services was awarded Medals of Honour from both France and Italy.  On the other hand, the Lilli Ann customer knew that their suits, coats and dresses were made of the highest quality, hand-loomed fabric. Lilli Ann was also recognised for its innovative designs and quality construction. The label received the Gold Medal in Fashion Design, America's highest award in fashion. Nowadays, there is very high demand for this label from collectors and fashionistas from around the world. It must be said that this label is one of my all-time favourites as many of my customers know...:)
