Carnegie of London was a British dress manufacturer that operated from the 1940s through to the 1980s. At the time of their closing (1984), they were situated in Osborn Street, Aldgate (Central London). Little is known of this manufacturer but, from my experience, the company produced high-quality clothing (this dress is similar in quality to a Horrockses).



Excellent vintage condition.

No notable flaws that I can see.  

Please note that these are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws will be highlighted.



Beautiful and eye-catching dress - in fabulous condition too. Love the duck egg blue colour and the white trim for contrast.

The listing is for the dress only and does not include any other accessories that may have been photographed with the item. 

This item has not been pinned to the dress form.
