    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.

     

    Condition 

    This gorgeous dress is in excellent condition for its age, colours are vibrant and the silk fabric is strong.  No notable flaws that I can see. This truly beautiful dress is freshly cleaned and ready to wear. 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.

    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 Southern. 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 ). The Kay Windsor label was eventually sold  to Vanity Fair in 1971 for $21 million but was discontinued in 1978.

    Condition 

    This is a quality dress with professional construction.  The fabric is also very beautiful. The only issue to note is that the green leaves to the bottom of the dress are slightly lighter than the remainder of the dress. Interestingly the inside hem is exactly the same. In any case, hardly noticeable when worn. The applique rose is beautifully fashioned with padded leaves stitched to simulate veins on the leaves. The dress presents beautifully as can be seen from the photographs.  Cleaned and ready to wear.

    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.

     

    Condition 

    This sought after Jerry Gilden dress is in excellent condition for its age. The only thing worth mentioning is that there is some hand stitching at one of the darts near waist seam. Hardly noticeable unless pointed out and could be easily machined if desired.  Really there is nothing to detract from the presentation and wearability of this beauty. Shown with a crinoline for demonstration purposes only. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Condition 

    This dress is in excellent condition for its age, although it has a couple of minor issues. It is slightly faded but you can only tell by comparing with hidden fabric. You cannot tell at all when worn. There is a tiny alteration at the tip of bodice (shown in last photo) where it was taken in slightly but you would never know. Two tiny pin dot spots  at base of one pocket again hardly noticeable. Front darts partially let out near waist. None of these detract from the presentation or wearability of the dress as you can see from the photos, but nevertheless I have priced it accordingly. Shown with a ribbon belt and crinoline for demonstration purposes only. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.

    Comment

    This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in great condition for its age. While close to sixty years old. the dress has no major flaws that I can see other than the button at the back has broken in half.....I will include a period replacement and the seam at the zipper needs to be re-sewn about an inch. A little underarm discolour hardly seen. All in all, the dress present extremely well and is very eye-catching. Shown with a crinoline and ribbon belt which are not included in this listing. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this dress.

    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, apart from breaks in the boning, although this does not affect the wearability or presentation of the dress.
