* Marjorie Michael label

 Marjorie Michael established her California based fashion business in 1948. In her quest to design "dresses that enhanced a women's femininity" she ensured that only natural fibres were used in her clothing range. These were often imported from France and Italy. At the label's peak, the output was considered to be equal to the high profile labels "Peggy Hunt" and "Dorothy O'Hara". Over 800 department and larger retail stores in the USA carried her lines. The business closed in the mid 1970s.

 

Comment

This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in generally excellent condition for its age. Although this dress is over 60s years of age, there are no rips or damage. The only noticeable flaw is the faintest small mark to the lower front waist (so small unable to be photographed) and some pinpoint marks at back bodice. These very minor flaws are reflected in the price.

Some items may be pinned to the form for presentation purposes.
