Fred Perlberg (1901-1991) began working in the New York fashion industry when he was sixteen. Three years later he started his own company (1920).  Fred Perlberg Originals were quality medium-priced evening and dance dresses that young women wore to proms, parties and weddings. His label was sold in major department stores across the United States and Canada. Fred retired in 1968, but the company continued with Roger Milot as the designer. In the year he retired, he was named Man of the Year in honour of his contribution to the American fashion industry.

 

Comment

This vintage dress presents beautifully. The only issues that I can see are that some stitches have unravelled along the waist area of the back zipper, tiny bit of seam stress there as well, and internally the metal stays need to be secured at the base as the metal prongs have broken through their casings (not seen from the outside).  All these issues are minor and can be easily fixed. Price is adjusted accordingly.  Shown with a crinoline, that is not included in this listing.
