    Luis Estévez was born in Cuba in 1930. Following a brief sojourn at the luxury department store, Lord & Taylor, he decided to make fashion his career, enrolling at the Traphagen School of Fashion. Upon graduation, he lfet for Paris to work for the iconic Patou fashion house for two years. In 1955 he began designing under his own name at Grenelle-Estévez, a venture that lasted until 1968. He also designed swimwear for Sea Darlings in the 1960s and 1970s and men’s wear for Jaymar in the 1970s. In 1972, he began designing under a label for actress Eva Gabor while, at the same time, working for Universal Studios. In 1977, Estévez began accepting commissions from private clients, many of whom were Hollywood stars. His specialties were form-fitting cocktail and evening dresses, made with striking necklines that “cross, scoop, drape and cling to form tricky geometric patterns on the wearer’s shoulders. He retired from designing in 1997.

The colour is absolutely beautiful and the fabric is in wonderful condition - combined with the impeccable tailoring this dress is a must have for those that appreciate timeless elegance.

    Louis Feraud

    In 1950, Louis Féraud created his first "Maison de Couture" in Cannes and by 1955 had established a couture house in Paris on 88, Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré and 57, rue Pierre-Charonne. From the mid-1950s he was dressing the Parisian elite including designing the wardrobe of the famous French movie actress Brigitte Bardot's for many of her movies. It wasn't until 1958 that he presented his first haute couture collection in Paris. In the early 60s, he hired the designers Jean-Louis Scherrer, Margit Brandt and Per Spook.  A major player in the development of the Space Age look, Feraud along with fellow French designers, ensured that this new modern style vibrated around the world. Feruad won many awards for fashion design during his lifetime as well as being a decorated Officier de la Legion d'Honneur. In 2003, Jean-Paul Knott left Féraud and that July the worldwide flagship store opened in Paris at 400 rue Saint-Honoré.

    The Lanz Company set up business in the USA around 1930 (previously from Austria). The company has a long tradition of historical-inspired clothing and their clothing is hard to date because of this. The dress above was made in the 1980s but has a distinctive 1960s influence. The company ceased production in 2000.

     

    Comment

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in great condition for its age. Remember this dress is over forty years old and presents beautifully.

    Bebe label

    POLLY Style, Mules and Spring-o-laTOR SHOES
    Polly style mules as well as Spring-o-lator heels were made famous by pin-up girls, cocktail waitresses, burlesque dancers and starlets back in the early 1960's. 
    The star given most notoriety for wearing mules was Marilyn Monroe, although Jane Russell, her co-star, also loved wearing them. Polly shoes were launched in 1961 and became synonymous with the half metal/half wood heel that was deemed non breakable.These shoes are very similar to Polly shoes of the 1960s but are estimated to be manufactured during the 1980s. The shoes are extremely COMFORTABLE and easy to walk in.

     

    Comment
    This vintage shoes has been carefully looked after and are in excellent condition for their age. They appear to have never been worn and the only flaw I can see is slight markings on insole of shoes not visible when worn.

    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...:)

    Eleanor Green arrived in the United States in the 1930s from her native Hungary, as a young 21 year old. Within a few weeks she was commissioned to make clothes for an exclusive dress salon. The dresses she made were so beautiful that the owner of the salon kept them for herself. A dress manufacturer, on hearing the story, promptly hired her himself. After a six month stint there, Eleanor finally started out on her own. Her motivation was to design couture quality dresses that were both easy to wear and affordable. The Californian Independent Magazine's article in 1960 said of Eleanor Green - "As an ambassador of fashion and goodwill, at home and abroad, Eleanor Green has no peer. For she creates feminine, flattering styles for every occasion for luncheon in town to cocktails at 7pm and makes them perfect for urban suburban living.  Her idea that high fashion. feminine styling, and popular price could be combined in the same dress - has won her plaudits of women everywhere who appreciate beauty." All the Eleanor Green dresses I've seen over the years have stood apart. Not only truly beautiful in their own right, they also feature unique design twists (such as the petals on this dress) along with superb tailoring. Truly a desirable piece.

    Shannon Rodgers
    Jerry Silverman and Shannon Rodgers were founders and partners in the Shannon Rodgers label, one of the fashion industry's most successful New York women's ready-to-wear firms of the second half of the 20th century. Rodgers had previously designed for the movies, starting with Cecil B. DeMille's The Warrior's Husband in 1932. Rodgers subsequently moved to Hollywood . Under contract to DeMille, Rodgers worked on movies including Cleopatra and The Adventures of Marco Polo. During the 1930s, Rodgers worked as a Hollywood studio artist under many of the most well-known designers of the day on films including Man Chases Woman, Vogues of 1938, Prisoner of Zenda, Marie Antoinette and The Barretts of Wimpole Street. 

    He later worked with Silverman at Martini, a dress company that adapted Parisian designs. On collaborating with Silverman, Rodgers continued this practice in their designs and became known for their Americanised versions of Balenciaga designs. They produced ismple, but elegant, dresses, often with a single decoration to add interest

    In the early 1960s Rodgers began collecting historic costumes. Eventually the collection would grow to be one of the most important private costume collections in the United States. They closed their business around 1978. In 1983, they donated their large clothing collection to Kent State University, where it formed the basis of their museum’s collection of historical fashion.

    Jean Allen

    Jean Allen was a London-based fashion house operating through the 1950s to the  High Street boom of the1970s. The company produced good quality fashion items. Sue Irving, an employee of the company in the 1970s recalled that “there was an actual Jean Allen who controlled the fashion house, at Cavendish Square London, she was married to a Mr Parry Billings who was instrumental in the day to day decisions. I only know this as I worked there in 1975. They used to source all their models from the London College of fashion, Mr Billings always said that their girls knew how to walk properly!, They had a factory in Italy where their designs came to life.” 

     

    Comment

    This is an early label Jean Allen dress and is in great condition for its age. The only issue I can see is some minor fraying at the hemline which can be re-stitched if desired. A beautiful Summer dress that can be dressed up or down
