The Gay Gibson label was owned by the Gernes Garment Company and dates from 1937. Their manufacturing base was in Kansas City, Missouri. The label produced excellent examples of mid-priced garments, often taking their design lead from Parisienne fashions.



This eye-catching dress is in excellent condition for its age and presents beautifully. Fabric colour is vibrant and unfaded. No notable flaws that I can see, other than the zipper seam has been reinforced at the waistline and inside seams are a little raggy and could do with a tidy up but not an issue affecting durability, wearability or outside presentation. Only mentioned for accuracy. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
