Jonathan Logan was a popular manufacturer of women’s classic dresses, have been foundered in 1944. The brand was a stable of just about every young girl's closet during the 1950s and 60s. In fact by 1966, Jonathan Logan had become one of the largest ready to wear companies 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 1970’s, and today, vintage collectors seek out these labels for their style and quality.
This beautiful dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see.
The bust is gathered on this dress and although it measures up to 38 inches it would be best for a 36 inch bust as the midriff is tight. Measurements for the top of the cummerbund immediately under the bust is included in the measurements. Shown with a crinoline and ribbon belt for presentation purposes and not included in the sale.
