Inaugurated in 1939 in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the company's mantra was to produce moderately-priced dresses and suits that transformed ordinary day wear into chic and stylish garments. In 1954, Kay Windsor Frocks produced a line of Private Secretary dresses, in conjunction with a popular television program of the same name starring Ann Sothern. The arrangement allowed Ann Southern to appear in media advertising on behalf of the the label. Kay Windsor Fashions produced several lines of clothing, but were particularly known for their wide range of novelty and floral prints in a variety of bright shades, often against a black background (and no I didn't make that up). The Kay Windsor label was eventually sold to Vanity Fair in 1971 for $21 million but was discontinued in 1978.
This beautiful dress is in excellent vintage condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see - perhaps a couple of tiny marks here and there - the dress presents beautifully. The bodice length is adjustable according to where you tie the straps.. Shown with a crinoline and belt for presentation purposes and not included in the sale.
