    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.

    Koret of California was founded in 1939 by Stephanie and Joe Koret. Joe was a traveling salesman when he married Stephanie and she often traveled with him, modeling the sweaters he was selling. When customers began asking for skirts to match the sweaters, Koret began making a style they called the Trikskirt. The Trikskirt used a drawstring and a series of stitched pleats to create a well-fitting skirt that was adjustable. In only two years Koret made over a million dollars.

    Koret went on to develop other products including pants that had a better fit (Slim Hip Slax) and permanently pleated skirts (Pleetskirt). They developed a full range of sportswear and even more formal attire such as suits. They were a leader in the separates market, producing lines with many different coordinating pieces. They also became known for a special no-iron fabric they developed called Koratron.

    In the 1979, a year after Stephanie’s death, Koret was bought by Levi Strauss and in the early 1980s Joe passed away. Koret continued as part of the Kellwood Corporation until 2012. Today the line is sold at mid priced stores like Macy’s. (Courtesy of the Vintage Fashion Guild)

Because of their construction and styling, the label is keenly sought after by today's vintage fashion collectors and lovers.

    Comment

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in very good condition for its age. The only blemish I could find is some slight yellowing in the lining that does not show through to the outside of the dress.

    Shown with a crinoline, which is not included. Accessories not included unless noted. Some items may be pinned to the form for presentation purposes.

    We are more than happy to answer all inquires about this dress and to negotiate a mutually agreeable lay-by arrangement if you so wish.  If you are looking for something that you don't currently find in our shop - drop us a line, we would love to accommodate you with a special listing!

The only other thing worth noting is that the colours may not be as vibrant as they would have been originally. The only reason I say this is that I've had this dress before and it was slightly darker- but it really doesn't show on the dress itself - is looks fabulous!

    Please note that these are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws above and beyond this will be highlighted here.

     

    Comment 

    This is such a beautiful and feminine dress from one of my favourite labels. So much detail in the bodice and upper skirt. Please drop us a line if you require additional information about this listing.

    * Vintage 1950s ivory crisp cotton dress

    * Amazing novelty print of peacock feathers in shades of pink, grey and black

    * Cap sleeve bodice with squared neckline

    Desmonds Department Store, Southern California was a high end retail chain based in Pasadena. At its peak, Desmonds had 19 stores throughout Southern California. It began as a hat shop founded by Daniel Desmond and grew into a major apparel retailer selling men's, women's and boys' specialty clothing including locally produced fashions. During the 1950s, several well-known designers working in southern California who created original screen prints for local shops. I should imagine this was one of them.

     

    Condition 

    This magnificent novelty print dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age with  only one small issue. There is a tiny break near shoulder seam that, with a quick fix,  will disappear completely in the busy print. The fabric itself looks hardly worn and remains vibrant and crisp. I wouldn't be surprised if it is old store stock The dress was quite dirty when I received it and since washing it a couple of times, its come up really well. In fact, the border is now closer to white than ivory. Should imagine that it will improve with further washes. Cleaned and ready to wear.

    Comment

    This striking purse is in excellent condition for its age with a clean interior.  Perhaps the shape is not as precise as it was originally but does not detract from the presentation as can be seen. A wonderful example of a whimsical handbag so popular in the 1950s and 60s.

    We are more than happy to answer any inquires about this item or to negotiate a mutually agreeable lay-by arrangement.  If you are looking for something that you don't currently find in our shop - drop us a line, we would love to accommodate you with a listing!

    Description

    * Lovely late 1950s to early 1960s cotton dress

    * Fabric design features pink full-blown roses and green leaves

    * These are placed in horizontal strips 

    * Classic silhouette with a fitted waist and full skirt

    * Sleeveless bodice with a square neckline and darts from waist to under bust

    * Full knife-pleated skirt with two insert pockets

    * Metal closed-in metal zipper at back

     * Unlined, raw seams with machined hem

    * Unlabelled

     

    Condition 

    Excellent. 

    No notable flaws that I can see. The dress had two crease marks at the hemline where it was obviously let down. I have managed to mostly eliminate these, I'm sure they will disappear completely with subsequent washes.

    There is a seam along the center back and I suggest that the zipper be replaced with a longer one that opens at the neckline to assist with getting in and out of the dress. There is a tear to this seam that does not affect wearability but just can't be let out from there. However, there is plenty of room to let out at each side seam - one inch per side.

    Please note that these are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws above and beyond this will be highlighted here.

     

    Comment 

    This dress is all about the gorgeous vibrant pink full-blown roses that adorn the fabric. The simple cut enhances their beauty.  Please drop us a line if you require additional information about this listing.

    * California Cottons label 

    California Cottons
    Very little information if available on the history of this label. Research indicates that the label probably originated in the United States but was heavily marketed within in the United Kingdom. During the 1950s and1960s however, the manufacturing was done exclusively in Britain, with the actual design work was outsourced to the United States . The clothing from this label is very eye catching and beautifully detailed. To the extent where California Cottons must match the quality of Horrockses Fashions. While its history may be a little vague, its collectability is not. The label is highly prized today.(Thanks to Liz at Advantage in Vintage)

     

    Condition 

    This highly sought after novelty print dress is in excellent vintage condition with no  flaws other than perhaps a mark or two but nothing particularly evident. It presents beautifully. The dress had been taken out with the ghost stitching evident. But the dress has now been restored to its original size.

    Comment

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in excellent condition for its age. Remember this dress is over sixty years old and has no major flaws that I can see. Minor spot of discolour at lower bodice but hardly seen. The dress is slightly smaller than my mannequin and accounts for the slightly misshapen bust line in the images, as the zipper did not do up fully.
