Kay Windsor
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.
