    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. Of which, this is an excellent example.

      

    Condition 

    This dress is in excellent condition for its age, with no faults that I can see. The Mr Mort label is very collectable, and always features well made and eye-catching designs. The corset belt is optional. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in excellent condition for its age. It is without any noticeable damage, or wear externally. A very slight nick to the internal tulle petticoat (around .5cm) at the waist - easy fix.

    Pinned to the dress form to show proper fit.

    Condition 

    The fabric in this dress is of high quality and the colour is bright and unfaded. Dress is on excellent condition overall. I assume the dress was originally floor length and a previous owner has tacked the dress to its current length. This actually gives quite a lot of body to the skirt and it hangs beautifully as can be seen in the photos.  Nothing else to mention as far as I can see, other than a hand repaired seam for an inch above the zipper. This is a very eye-catching quality dress. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Comment

    Novelty skirts are in high demand and hard to find. This skirt's maritime theme is bold and beautiful and in a great colour palette. It presents beautifully the fabric is strong with no fade that I can see. The only issue of note is that there is some fraying to waistband possibly as a result of a manufacturing error as the stitching seams intact.

    Comment

    Hard to find original 1950s petticoats - especially in red! Here is one in pretty good condition too!. The elastic may need replacing soon as it has relaxed somewhat and there are some slight marks here and there. The Bottom hem is starting to fray but all in all still in pretty good condition for its age.

    Comment

    This highly collectable skirt is in excellent condition for its age and presents beautifully. The only issue I can find, and it is extremely small, is that there is some hand sewing on the waistband edge to prevent fraying.

    Comment

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in good condition for its age. Although it has been used, it presents beautifully. The only flaw is that the stitching has come undone just above the zipper (see photo) an easy fix. Priced accordingly as a result.

    Shown with a crinoline and ribbon for presentation purposes. Not included in the listing.

    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 

    Such an eye-catching dress and obviously a Dior copy!! It presents beautifully but has two light stripes of the slightest fading down the right side area. This produces an ombre effect, as it tones in so well it is hardly noticeable when worn. The last photo highlights the issue, it was very difficult to actually photograph the fading. Apart from that no major issues that I can see. This dress is an absolute stunner!! Shown with a crinoline and belt that are not included in the listing. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Neiman Marcus

    The Neiman Marcus store was founded in 1907 in downtown Dallas, Texas. From the beginning, the company's goal was to establish a retail business where not only was customer service unsurpassed but the range of goods on offer of exceptional quality. This mantra was particularly relevant within the fashion department where the store showcased the work of many first-rate American couturiers as well as upmarket designers. The store also staged the first fashion shows featuring in-house models. In 1938, with the aim of fostering high quality in the garment industry, Neiman Marcus established the Neiman Marcus Award for Excellence in Fashion. Unlike other fashion award in the United States, this one was open to international designers as well. Among the recipients of this award were: Nettie Rosenstein, Elizabeth Arden, Hattie Carnegie, Elsa  Schiaparelli, Adrian, Coco Chanel, Christian Dior and other design labels of the highest calibre.

     

    Comment

    This vintage dress is of high quality and is well-constructed - it presents beautifully. Really no issues to highlight other than the hem has been let down, but it is professionally finished. Only the slightest hint of the previous hemline remains - the netting underskirt is now several inches shorter - but none of this really affects the dress when wearing - as can be seen. Shown with an additional crinoline and ribbon belt for demonstration purposes only. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Jonathan Logan was a popular manufacturer of women’s classic dresses, starting up business in 1944.  The label enjoyed immediate appeal and by the 1950s, it became an essential component of just about every young woman's closet.  In fact, by 1966, Jonathan Logan had become one of the largest 'ready to wear' companies operating in the USA.

    Jonathan Logan eventually became a collection of fourteen different brands, each geared to a different consumer group. What do these vintage labels have in common: Betty Barclay, Butte Knit, R & K Originals, Youth Guild and Jonathan Logan? At one time, all of these labels were popular divisions of the first large apparel conglomerate: Jonathan Logan. These labels were on some of the most popular dresses and sportswear from the 1950’s through to the 1970’s, Today, vintage collectors seek out these labels for both their style and quality.

    Comment

    This dress is in great condition for its age. The colours are vibrant and the fabric is strong. There is a slight amount of underarm dusting, but really not noticeable when worn. One petal has the palest amount of bleed but again absolutely nothing to detract. The dress is washed and cleaned ready for wear. Pictured with a crinoline for demonstration purposes only.
