    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.

    * Sleeveless bodice with plunge neckline

    * Self bows adorn each shoulder

    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!

      

    Condition 

    This amazing dress is in wonderful condition for its age, looks hardly worn, if at all.  No notable flaws that I can see, dress is immaculate, cleaned and ready to wear. One of the most striking Suzy Perette labelled dresses I have seen. The silhouette is simple but so flattering, and the pellon lining adds body and structure to the silk. Not sure if there might have been a simple tacking stitch to the plunging neckline but I can't find where it would have been, but a simple thing to do should you want it to be less décolleté . I love it as it is!! Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Condition 

    This eye catching dress is actually deadstock with its original hanging tags still attached. It is in pristine condition save for a patch of very slight colour bleed below the waist in one spot. The last picture highlights this. This dress  is cleaned and ready to wear and I must say the area of bleed lightened in the wash. It could very well disappear completely after a couple of more washes. Really not a big issue at all, hardly noticeable.

    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...:)

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!

    * Label reads Lilli Diamond

    Lilli Diamond was a popular brand within the USA from the 1930s through to the mid 1980s. The label was acclaimed for its sexy, bombshell designs that showcased a woman's figure and made them feel like glamorous movie stars. The brand was sold in numerous upscale boutiques and department stores, with Fredericks of Hollywood being the biggest retailer, particularly via their extensive mail order catalogue. The label was hugely popular, establishing itself as one of the leading evening and cocktail dress outlets within the USA. This was despite some department stores refusing to stock the items as they deemed them too sexy for their conservative clientele. The label was eventually sold to Campus Casuals in 1965, with the label continuing well into the 1980s.

     

    Condition 

    This eye-catching dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see - perhaps a pin prick or two and very slight scuffing - but very minor. Please note that the magenta lining does not need to show in front I just draped it that way because I liked the flash of colour.

    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...:)

    In 1934 Mary Ann Deweese entered the California clothing industry by designing for Los Angles Knitting Mills. She left to design sportswear for Sandeze, another California clothing house. She designed there for three years. Mary Ann then spent twelve years as head designer for Catalina, where she received world-wide acclaim as a designer.

    She worked with top studio designers on suits for the stars and for many years designed the swimsuits worn in the Miss America pageant. She also worked with Schiaparelli. Mary Ann was credited with such innovations as texture use, including Jacquard knits and appliquéd stretch cottons. She also introduced “sweetheart” matching swimwear and sportswear for men and women.

    Having reached peaked success with Catalina she decided to launch her own company in 1951, called “DeWeese Designs,” turning out high-fashion swimsuits and sundresses. Her early swimsuits were often decorated with fanciful appliques and rhinestones. In 1961 she designed the official U.S. team suits for the World Water Team Championships and the Olympics in 1960. Thelabel lasted until 1984. (Courtesy of the Vintage Fashion Guild)
