    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

    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...:)

     Warner's

    Warner’s released its first line of “Merry Widow” foundation garments in 1952. The collection was inspired by the release that same year of the movie The Merry Widow, whose star, Lana Turner, was featured wearing an elaborate, long-line corset. While Warner’s Merry Widows changed in style over the course of the 1950s (and only occasionally resembled the styles worn by Turner), they were all promoted for their ability to shape the fashionable wasp-waisted silhouette. “Audacious the way Warner’s Merry Widow belittles your waist, makes the most of your charms. All at once you’re inches smaller!” boasted one advertisement. Merry Widows were designed to reduce the measurement of the waist up to three inches.

     

    Comment

    Beautiful original Merry Widow corselet in great condition for its age without any notable flaws. It was photographed on a mannequin with a 34 inch bust and a 25 inch waist without the corset being fully extended. Bustier could accommodate larger cup size as seen in the photos. This is a rare and sought after item!
