Gay Gibson Label

The Gay Gibson label, which was owned by the Gernes Garment Company, dates from 1937. Their manufacturing base was in Kansas City, Missouri. The label produced excellent examples of mid-priced garments, often taking a design lead from Parisien fashion. This form of diagonal pleating was, in fact, pioneered by Christian Dior.



This vintage dress is in excellent condition for its age. Remember this dress is over sixty years old and has no noticeable flaws that I can see, other than one pin dot hole (extremely small) in the skirt. All in all, this is a beautiful and well-constructed dress. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
