Jerry Gilden was a maker of moderately-priced women’s ready-to-wear from the mid 1940s into 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 company was producing over a million garments a year.
Their 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.
This dress is in excellent condition for its age and free from notable flaws. Looks hardly worn although the hem has been let down at some stage.So excited to include an original ad that features this dress. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
