The R&K Dress Corporation was established in 1932 in New York. Trading under the name of R&K Originals, the factory produced fashionable yet well-made women's clothing at moderate prices. Their slogan was "for the girl who knows clothes. ’ The label is still active today. Nowadays, this label is keenly sought by vintage collectors who appreciate both the style and quality of the items.
This dress is in excellent condition for its age. It is without notable flaws, damage or rips. On close inspection, the flocking on some flowers is not as dense as others but this is really not noticeable. Shown with a crinoline and ribbon for presentation purpose only. This item was pinned to the dress form, as you can see the mannequins bust is smaller than the dress. On a suitable sized bust the dress would sit smoothly and not wrinkle as it has done here.
