    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!

    Slalom Ski Wear B.F Moore & Co
    (1) date of garment - early 1940
    (2) type of garment - Ski Jacket
    (3) Found company info here - http://vtskiandride.com/vermonts-original-ski-fashion-istas-tbt/


    One of the first skiwear manufacturers in the United States was B.F. Moore & Co. in Newport, Vt. Founded in 1830, the company built a reputation for producing durable work and outdoor clothing. It started the Slalom Ski Wear brand in 1931, providing function and fashion at a moderate price.In 1972, Bogner chose Newport to start its United States subsidiary, Bogner of America, probably because of B.F. Moore’s skilled workforce there. The facility closed in 2005, but Bogner of America is still headquartered in Vermont.

    De De Johnson
    (1) 1940
    (2) Suit
    (3) Company Info- http://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc?a=d&d=DS19521201.2.35

    Shorter than a Capri and with a slightly wider leg, the pedal pusher was created by DeDe Johnson. Her motivation was at least partly practical: The L.A. designer wanted to help ensure that a lady's skirts wouldn't get caught in her bicycle chain. Johnson is credited with several other fashion firsts, including the divided skirt and clam diggers. But it was the pedal pusher that took off in the '50s after it was worn by teen idols Sandra Dee and Annette Funicello, as well as by Hollywood stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Johnson is counted among those California apparel makers who helped popularize sportswear nationally. "They took advantage of our year-round good weather and our suburban lifestyle to create clothing that was light, easy to wash, easy to care for and fashionable," says Kaye Spilker, a curator of costume and textiles at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Johnson made a splash in other ways too, once tumbling off the rim of the Grand Canyon, where a fashion show was being held. She landed on a ledge 50 feet below, unhurt.

    I signed up to submit this label i came across yesterday

    It was a Polo Ralph Lauren Men's Button Down Shirt and seems to match closely with the late 1980's tag.

    This could also be a better replacement label for the 1980's authentic dungarees Ralph Lauren you currently have

    This is a Vassarette robe I found at a thrift. I believe it was made in the 80s by the font of Vassarette, though it certainly has a 40's look. It's gorgeous deadstock. It's "velvalour". That's all I have! :)

    Some clarification over an errant Harris Tweed label in our resource:

    A new entry is required for
    The Independant Harris Tweed Producers Ltd (of the shield logo)
    The 'shield' logo label currently included on the Harris Tweed Association Ltd page belongs to the above named.

    The Independant Harris Tweed Producers Ltd. was a collective of three mainland mills (trademarked in 1958) who were selling tweed cloth as Harris Tweed but that was not authorised nor stamped with the orb mark. Some of them justified this use of the Harris Tweed name by putting the yarn onto beams, shipping them to one of a the hebrides islands where it was turned into tweed on a loom and then having it shipped back to the mainland, finished off and marketed as Harris Tweed. Some also went to the length of spraying the fabric with a 'Harris Tweed Aroma' (said to immitate peat fire smoke) however this was misguided as the 'aroma' of Harris Tweed is actually due to the crofter's urine used to shrink the tweed after weaving.
    The Harris Tweed Association began legal procedings against them in 1962 in English courts, while The Independant Harris Tweed Producers Ltd began legal procedings in 1961 in the Scottish courts, this went on to become the longest court case in Scottish legal history, ending in 1964 when it was ruled that all parts of the manufacturing process must be completed in the Outer Hebrides for it to be called Harris Tweed.

    As such, all trademarked Independant Harris Tweed Producers Ltd labels are likely to date between 1958-1964. Other brands using the Harris Tweed name but without the Orb mark are also likely to have been made prior to 1964.

    The Harris Tweed Association Ltd (of the Orb mark)

    The Harris Tweed Association began legal procedings against The Independant Harris Tweed Association Ltd in 1962 in English courts over their use of the name 'Harris Tweed', while The Independant Harris Tweed Producers Ltd began legal procedings in 1961 in the Scottish courts, this went on to become the longest court case in Scottish legal history, ending in 1964 when it was ruled that all parts of the manufacturing process must be completed in the Outer Hebrides for it to be called Harris Tweed.

    For future reference it appears all Harris Tweed labels post trademark registration should feature the Orb mark.

    1. Following input from the forum, guess is now 1950-1960
    2. Ladies evening jacket
    3. Label resource already mentions history of Debenham and Freebody

    Additional Liberty House Label. I find this interesting because the rather large label says, "Made Expressly for Liberty House by Nalli Honolulu." The other labels do not have all of that additional jargon.

    Taken off a 1960's, green and white 100% cotton dress.
