    The Vintage Fashion Guild is constantly updating the Label Resource, and we welcome contributions. If you have labels to contribute, we ask that you keep in mind a few guidelines.

    First, please check the Label Resource to insure that your label is not already included.

    If your label is NOT shown there, and you feel it should be, then post an image of the label onto this thread, together with details of:
    (1) date of garment
    (2) type of garment
    (3) any information you have about the designer/label and where you found that info.

    Try to get a clear, straight shot of the label.
    Please try to submit labels that are at least 500 pixels or larger.
    Do not worry about cropping or resizing--we will take care of that. Please try to give clear, focused shots though.

    Also, because of the change of the label sizes when changing to the new format, some of the old labels are grainy and hard to read. If you have one of the labels that is in this condition, we welcome your replacement label.

    By posting your label image here, you are giving your copyright assignment for the image to go onto the Label Resource. You will be credited for your contribution.

    We are always looking for new information about any of the labels on the resource. Please post here or contact me through the convo if you have information you wish to contribute!

    Concerning Use of the Label Resource:

    Welcome to the Vintage Fashion Guild's Label Resource. Here you'll find a large collection of vintage label images, complete with biographies and company histories for each label.

    We are working hard to make sure this Resource is as comprehensive as possible. It is a work in progress;its growth depends upon contributions of labels, and any omissions are due to the fact that examples of many designers' work are scarce. We welcome contributions of labels that are not represented on the Resource.

    This Resource is to be used only as an educational tool, and is not intended as a value guide. Inclusion of a label in the resource is not an indication of value, as garments vary greatly in value depending on many factors. Another point that needs to be considered by users is that some companies used the same label for many years, and just because the garment used on the label resource is a certain date, it does not mean that all garments with the same label are the same date.

    The labels included have been carefully researched, we have worked hard to insure that all information is correct. If a mistake should be found, we would greatly appreciate access to your information so the Resource can be corrected.

    We hope you find the Vintage Fashion Guild's Label Resource useful. We provide the Resource at no cost to the vintage community, and we are pleased when people are able to use it. We do ask that if you use the resource or copy parts of it on another site (such as eBay, blogs, articles, etc) that you credit VFG in the following way: "Information courtesy of The VintageFashionGuild Label Resource" or "Information courtesy of {Contributor's Name}/the VintageFashionGuild Label Resource.

    Please note that the author of the bio owns the copyright to the work, and that the copyright is assigned to the VFG. In order to be in compliance with eBay's copyright policy, and the law, you must credit all copyrighted work.

    Thank you!

    WF Adlmüller - from a 1970s tie. Same label as we already have, but that one was from the 60s - just shows the label was used over a longer period.

    Hi all, this is a silk chiffon late '80s dress by Italian couturier Andrea Odicini. I'm having trouble finding information on the designer, but the work is top notch and goes for high prices.

    Apologies for the small label pic, if you'd like a better/bigger one, please let me know.
