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.
