    Pat Premo

    Pat Premo was one of the handful of California designers that drove the west coast wing of the American sportswear initiative. She began her career making "little golf dresses" out of superior fabrics like Egyptian lawn cotton, with meticulous, intricate tailoring and dressmaker details. The Pat Premo label was started by Pat and her husband, Bill Schiminke in the 1940s. The label become known for its  unique fabrics and prints and for its well-fitting lines that were always beautifully finished. Of particular note, was her fondness for horizontal stripes which contrary to common wisdom she found highly flattering.. The company ceased production in the 1970s.

    Condition 

    Oh my, this is such an eye-catching dress.  Not surprised that the label is a Jeanne d'Arc. As all the dresses I have owned with this label have been quite special. On the most part, they have been very feminine florals or dress with embroidered details, but this one is really unique: both in fabric design and construction. It is in excellent condition for its age, freshly laundered and ready to wear. There is a very large hem on this dress and it can easily dropped to your required length if currently too short. It does not appear it would leave a visible hemline. Belt for presentation purposes only and not included within this listing. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this gorgeous dress.

    Kerrybrooke was one of the house brands of Sears, Roebuck & Company. - at one time the largest retailer in the United States. It operated a mail-order company as well as a chain of stores across the USA. Products sold were mid-priced and often exclusive to the company.  During the 1930s, Sears began to develop its own clothing brands, such as Kerrybrooke, Charmode, Roebucks, King’s Road, and The Fashion Place labels.The slogan for the Kerrybrroke line was Kerrybrooke IS fashion.

     

    Condition 

    This eye-catching dress is in great vintage condition for its age with the only issue I can see is a small iron-on patch on the inside of the dress bodice - not at all visible from the outside due to the print - not sure why this was placed there but does not detract from the presentation or wearability of the dress.  In fact, I nearly overlooked it. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    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.

    Comment

    This dress is in excellent condition without any notable rips, stains, fading or holes. On close inspection the only thing I can add is that the hem appears slightly uneven but in no way detracts from the presentation of the dress. A sophisticated Summer dress that can be worn with many accessories for a different look.

    Comment

    This is a very pretty Summer dress, that can be made to appear bright yellow or subdued buttercup depending on the underneath slip used - it is sheer. Condition is excellent, if I was extremely picky I could say some slight discolouration to  a few raised dots but hardly noticeable overall. Such a pretty dress!

    Carolyn Schnurer

    During her twenty-year career in fashion, from 1944 to 1964, Carolyn Schnurer was a pioneer in the newly emerging American sportswear industry. Directing her designs toward young active women, Schnurer developed coordinates and dresses that were unfussy, required minimal foundation garments and could be worn for a variety of occasions. She was particularly renowned for her culturally-inspired resort collections, rather than producing blatantly costumed designs. Schnurer's work maintained a classic American silhouette while incorporating cultural themes in fabric selection or construction detail.

    Carolyn was renowned for researching different cultures and interpreting these into her dress  and textile designs. An essential part of her extensive research was to actually visit a country to gain in-depth knowledge of its architecture, environment and customs. 

    This particular dress is from Schnurer’s 1952  “Flight to Japan" collection and highlights  her inspirational dress design techniques and use of unusual textile patterns. Two other dresses from this same collection are displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In addition to traveling to Japan for inspiration, she also made stops in Hong Kong and Myanmar (Burma). Later research saw her travel to many different lands for her collections.

    A Carolyn Schnurer design comes up for sale very rarely and this is a wonderful opportunity to purchase your very own piece of fashion history!!

     

    Comment

    This dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age free from rips, major stains, notable fading or holes. There may be a couple of tiny spots here or there but nothing immediately obvious. The dress appears to have been hardly worn. One point I would like to make is to emphasise  the versatility of the dress design. The attached stole can be worn in different ways -  apart from the most obvious shown in photos 1 and 2.  For example, I have shown it used as  a cummerbund sash showing the front effect in photo 4  and what it looks like from the back in photo 5.  I am sure you can come up with may different ways to wear this unique dress! The last photo highlights where the base of the stole is attached to the dress itself - across the back side seams.

    I would also like to point out that that there is nothing wrong with the top button of the dress it's just that I couldn't secure it on my mannequin. We are more than happy to answer any inquires about this item.

    * 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.

    Bucherer
    Famous worldwide for its high quality, high procession watches. Based in Lucerne, Switzerland it has been producing high calibre watch since the 1880s. Higher grade watches have traditionally used a jewelled movement, which means that jewels (originally natural ruby later synthetic) were actually used in the movement. These jewels are functional, used as bearings for the wheel trains and in high-wear parts such as the escape lever and impulse jewel. A lower-end movement prior to 1970 would typically use 5 to 7 jewels. 

    Comment

    Absolutely gorgeous timepiece, functions well and has no flaws or damage to its physical appearance. This is a true collector's item.

    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)

    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...:)

     

    Condition 

    This very rare ensemble is in excellent condition and has never been worn. It still retains its original store swing tags. All Lilli Ann ensembles are becoming hard to find but it is almost impossible to find one in a larger size. Not to mention the colour scheme which is so eye-catching. This perfect condition ensemble is a must!! Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    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...:)
