    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 friends and clients would know 😉

    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 

    This dress is in excellent condition for its age.  No notable flaws that I can see. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Condition 

    This highly sought after novelty print dress is in great vintage condition for its age with the only flaw I can see is that there is a fade line where the dress was let down. Easy to remove by putting in a pink tuck at that location and have the striped portion start  slightly higher. That would eliminate the fade line completely,  Shoe button eyes might need to be reinforced at some stage as the cotton thread is slightly loose. Cleaned and ready to wear.

    Kay Windsor
    Inaugurated in 1939 in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the company's mantra was to produce moderately-priced dresses and suits that transformed ordinary day wear into chic and stylish garments. In 1954, Kay Windsor Frocks produced a line of Private Secretary dresses, in conjunction with a popular television program of the same name starring Ann Sothern. The arrangement allowed Ann Southern to appear in media advertising on behalf of the the label. Kay Windsor Fashions produced several lines of clothing, but were particularly known for their wide range of novelty and floral prints in a variety of bright shades, often against a black background (and no I didn't make that up). The Kay Windsor label was eventually sold  to Vanity Fair in 1971 for $21 million but was discontinued in 1978.

     

    Condition 

    This beautiful dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age and a perfect example of the novelty floral print on dark background this label was noted for. There are no flaws that I can see. Shown with a crinoline and belt for presentation purposes and not included in the sale.  Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Jerry Gilden was a maker of moderately-priced women’s ready-to-wear from the mid 1940s through to the 1960s. The company was one of the top five producers of women’s dresses in the United States. At the peak of production, the label was producing over a million garments a year. 

    The in-house costume designer, Giselle, was responsible for designing the dresses and separates that made the Gilden name famous. After her death in 1952, Gilden took as his partners Sayde and Abe Weinberg, with Sayde becoming the designer of the Jerry Gilden lines. The firm ceased production in 1960. Because of their construction and styling, the label is keenly sought after by today's vintage fashion collectors and lovers.

    Comment

    This dress is in great condition with no rips, stains, fading or holes. The fabric still retains its sheen and is strong and crisp. The only minor issue of note is that the zipper seems to have been re-sewn near the waist for an inch or so - not noticeable unless looking for it and only mentioned for accuracy as this does not affect the appearance of the dress when worn. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Ossie Clark (1934-1996) went to work at Alice Pollock’s Quorum boutique in 1965, along with textile designer Celia Birtwell, whom he later married. Together, they created clothing that was one of the defining looks of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

    Birtwell’s fabrics were romantic and printed on a variety of textiles, including chiffon, velvet, and rayon crepe. Clark took the textiles, often combining several in a single garment, and created beautiful dresses. They often had a scooped or deeply V-ed neckline, long flowing sleeves and ingeniously cut panels that gave the appearance of layering. He also did a line of snakeskin clothing that was wildly popular.

    In 1969, Alfred Radley became a partner in Quorum, and Clark started designing for both fashion labels. These clothes were more affordable than Quorum designs and very popular and so Clark’s influence continued to grow. By the end of the 1970s, Ossie Clark’s career was pretty much over except for the occasional dress for a private client. He died in 1996. (Curtesy of the Vintage Fashion Guild)

     

    Condition 

    Ossie Clark dresses are rare and highly sought after. This particular dress is packed with amazing design details that make it really special. It's in excellent condition for its age.  No notable flaws that I can see, a tiny pink smudge on left upper sleeve that has lightened considerably and hardly noticeable. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Victor Josselyn is a British label that produced quality garments that rivalled Horrockses. All of the Victor Josselyn dresses I have seen feature gorgeous fabrics, mostly cotton, along with wonderful prints. The cut and finishing of the garments also reflects high production values.  The Victor Josselyn label is keenly sought out by collectors because of these attributes. This dress is no exception and I believe it dates from 1959 -1960.

    Comment

    This is an especially commissioned dress of the one worn by Marilyn Monroe in the film Niagara. Marilyn sizzled in this film-noir movie and this was one of the most iconic dresses from the 1953 film. Marilyn was so taken with the dress that she wore it to several publicity shoots independent of the movie.

    Horrockses was founded in 1791 in Preston, UK as a cotton manufacturer. In 1946 the company started Horrockses Fashions Limited and the Horrockses label was born. The clothing was designed  in London, using the cotton that was produced by the Horrockses Mill in Preston. Most of their garments were made from their cotton, but they also used other fibres from other makers.

    During the 1950s, Horrockses was famous for their colourful cotton floral prints, which were made into full-skirted summer dresses. These dresses were popular not only in Britain but they were also imported into the US, where they could be found at upscale stores such as B. Altman. The dresses, even though they were only cotton day dresses, were not cheap and were very well made. The company worked at improving the image of cotton and they were very successful. The company’s top designers left in 1958 and the company was sold to Steinberg & Sons in 1964. The label was discontinued in 1983. Courtesy of the Vintage Fashion Guild

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.

    Jerry Gilden was a maker of moderately-priced women’s ready-to-wear from the mid 1940s through to the 1960s. The company was one of the top five producers of women’s dresses in the United States. At the peak of production, the label was producing over a million garments a year. 

    The in-house costume designer, Giselle, was responsible for designing the dresses and separates that made the Gilden name famous. After her death in 1952, Gilden took as his partners Sayde and Abe Weinberg, with Sayde becoming the designer of the Jerry Gilden lines. The firm ceased production in 1960. Because of their construction and styling, the label is keenly sought after by today's vintage fashion collectors and lovers.

    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.
