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. Nowadays this label is keenly sought after by vintage fashion collectors.
Gorgeous fresh summer dress with striking print and the colour are quite beautiful together. I love this dress, everything combines to make a special eye-catching statement. In beautiful condition with no flaws to note.
