    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 construction techniques. The label received the Gold Medal in Fashion Design, America's highest award in fashion. Nowadays, there is huge demand for Lilli Ann apparel from collectors and fashionistas around the world. It must be said that this label is one of my all-time favourites as many of you may know...:)

    Missoni

    The Italian knitwear house Missoni has its roots in a small knitting business founded in 1953. For several years they sold sweaters to department stores, until 1958 when they started their own label. Their first collection was showcased in Milan that same year. The business quickly prospered, largely through the support of the fashion editor of Arianna Magazine, Anna Paiggi. By the early 1960s, the company had developed the designs that would make made them famous: flame stitches, wavy lines, and zigzags. The mid 1960s, saw their collections showcased in Paris and by the 1970s, they opened additional boutiques in Milan and New York. Missoni designs were championed in the US by Diana Vreeland, the highly influential editor of American Vogue.  Missoni reached the peak of its influence in the fashion world during this period. In the mid-1980s, a men’s line was started, along with a sports range. In 1996. the Missonis transferred control of the business to their three children. It remains a family business until this day.

    Interestingly, on 13 September 2011, Target Stores offered low-cost variants of Missoni products both in their stores and on their website. Most lines were sold out within 24 hours. There were long queues outside stores and the Target website was quickly overloaded. Within hours, many items appeared on eBay at significantly higher prices.

     Comment 

    Rare maxi dress from the most influential period of the Missoni Label - the 1970s. The rose floral design is also relatively rare, as Missoni specialised in geometrical designs. Please drop us a line if you require additional information about this listing.

    Ossie Clark

    Ossie Clark was a leading designer in London in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a very exciting and magical time for fashion in London.  Ossie was inspired by the past (especially the 30's and 40's) but always made the designs uniquely his own. He often collaborated with his wife, Celia Birtwell, who was also a talented textile designer. Birtwell’s fabrics were romantic and printed on a variety of textiles, including chiffon, velvet, and rayon crepe. Clark took the textiles and created beautiful dresses. They often had a scooped or deep V neckline, long flowing sleeves and ingeniously cut panels that gave the appearance of layering. By the end of the 1970s, Ossie Clark’s career was pretty much over except for the occasional dress for a private client. He died in 1996. Today his beautiful flowing romanticised dresses are highly prized amongst collectors, particularly the early ones such as this beauty.


    Condition 

    This dress is in excellent condition for its age.  No notable flaws that I can see, other than a tiny pin hole near the hemline.  The dress is absolutely gorgeous in person and has all the iconic features of an Ossie Clark dress: the fluttering sleeves, the deep v neckline, the slit back and the maxi length. The fabric design is unique and highly individual as each pattern is slightly different due to being done by hand. A truly exceptional dress. Cleaned and ready to wear.

    Description

    * Beautiful 1950s brown and white houndstooth designer dress

    * Classic silhouette with cinched waist and widening skirt

    * Sleeveless shirtfront bodice with wide peaked turnover collar and v-neck

    * Fastened by six brown buttons down front

    * Generous panelled skirt widening towards hemline

    * Unlined, finished seams with hand finished hem

    * Label reads Horrockses

    Horrockses was founded in 1791 in Preston, UK as a cotton manufacturer. In 1946 the company started Horrockses Fashions Limited and the Horrockses label was born. The clothing was designed  in London, using the cotton that was produced by the Horrockses Mill in Preston. Most of their garments were made from their cotton, but they also used other fibres from other makers.

    During the 1950s, Horrockses was famous for their colourful cotton floral prints, which were made into full-skirted summer dresses. These dresses were popular not only in Britain but they were also imported into the US, where they could be found at upscale stores such as B. Altman. The dresses, even though they were only cotton day dresses, were not cheap and were very well made. The company worked at improving the image of cotton and they were very successful. The company’s top designers left in 1958 and the company was sold to Steinberg & Sons in 1964. The label was discontinued in 1983. Courtesy of the Vintage Fashion Guild

    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...:)

    Description

    * Collectable 1970s fox brooch

    * Fox shape in mottled pastel colours

    * Distinctive v-shaped metal clasp inscribed with 'Lea Stein Paris'

    Léa Stein is a French artist and accessories maker, known for her compressed plastic buttons, brooches, rings and bracelets.

    Stein entered the fashion industry in 1957 working in textiles, and by 1965 had developed an interest in plastic. Lea encouraged her husband, Fernand Steinberger, (who was a chemist ) to develop a process of layering very thin sheets of cellulose acetate or rhodoid and then laminating them to form a multi-coloured sandwich of plastic. Each layer was subsequently baked, cooled and cut into shapes.  The process can take as long as six months. The beauty of this technique was that it allowed Stein to insert unusual fabrics, such as brocades and lace, as well as unusual colours and textures into the plastic. Her work is extremely creative and she has been recognised as being  "the most notable and innovative designer of plastic jewellery of the 20th century".

    This coat is in excellent condition for its age. No major flaws that I can see other than a couple of extremely small and faint marks......nothing of any note.

    * Early 1970s op art modernist print sheath dress

    * Italian silk jersey material

    * Cowl neckline with slight boat neck

    * Couture label Emilio Pucci made in Italy

    * Slips over head no additional openings

    Emilio Pucci  was famous for his ground-breaking designs that featured sensual, free-flowing lines that followed the natural curves of the body. His stretch silk and cotton jerseys were weightless, unlined, and wrinkle-proof - precursors for a modern, travel-friendly wardrobe that captivated a new generation of modern, active women.

    Comment

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in great condition for its age. It presents beautifully with minor flaws that are not at all noticeable when wearing. Priced accordingly.
