Slightly larger, slightly different Lord & Taylor Young New Yorker Shop label, from a 60s jacket
Another Priscilla of Boston label. This is from a 1950s day dress.
Alex Colman label is from a 1970's minidress (label is slightly different in shape than the one pictured on the resource from the 60's)
Both of these McGregor labels came off a 2-piece 1950's men's "cabana set" - the top label is from the shirt , the 2nd label is from the swim trunks
Jantzen label is from a men's 1980's cardigan sweater

The Carine Lanvin label is from spring 1967. Sorry!
This label from a 1960s dress:
William Pearson began his career in fashion in 1951 when he studied under Norman Norell. He began his own label sometime in the late 1950s. His couture business was based in Los Angeles. About 1967, Pearson moved to Paris where he let the city inspire him. He traveled back to Los Angeles twice a year to present his collections. A self described classicist, Pearson favored conservative looks that flattered his customers.
From a late 1960s coat:
Jean-Marie Armand was born about 1930. He worked as an assistant designer for Nina Ricci in the 1950s. In 1960, he was hired as the designer for Madelaine de Rauch. His first solo collection for de Rauch was in January 1961, but it was a huge flop. In July 1965, Armand opened his own small couture house in Paris. His designs were very architectural and modern, similar to those of Cardin and Courreges. He was known for his quadrangular skirt designs that were made with 4 panels and for never using buttons, as he felt they ruined the line of a garment. Armand's couture house was open until at least 1971, but he disappears from press mention after that.
From a late 1950s dress:
Utah Tailoring Mills was started in 1934 by Norm Bingham and Clyde Buehler in Ogden, Utah. The company made custom fitted clothing for individual clients. Sales representatives would show samples to their private clients, and each garment was made to order to that client's measurements. The client's name was even embroidered onto the dress label. By the 1950s, Utah Tailoring Mills had more than 100 employees in Odgen and 43 sales representatives all over the US. They became known for their use of Hollywood actresses as models in their advertising. In the 1970s, the average price for a Utah Tailoring Mills dress was $400-$500.
In 1977, Buehler sold his interest in the company to Norm's son, Boyd Bingham. After Norm died in 1979, Boyd became the president. He took the company to an even more exclusive clientelle and raised the average price of a dress to $1500-$2500. During the 1980s and 90s, the company's clients were mainly ultra-rich women whose identity was kept private.
In December of 1998, a fire in the building adjacent to Utah Tailoring Mills caused extensive damage and the company never recovered from it's losses. Utah Tailoring Mills went out of business in 2001.
From an early 1960s dress:

Missing from the label resource is Myer, the largest department store in Australia. It's just opened a newly refurbished flagship here in Melbourne with much celebration. Here is a brief history:
Myer is the largest department store in Australia, originating in 1900 when Sidney Myer and his brother opened a draper’s shop in Bendigo, rural Victoria.
As the shop flourished, more shops were opened including in Bourke Street, Melbourne. The Bourke Street shop expanded as nearby properties became available and became the Myer Emporium.
From here a number of department stores were opened all around Australia, making Myer the only department store to have shops in every state.
Additionally, other department stores were acquired and renamed including Marshall’s in Adelaide, Boan’s in Western Australia, Barry and Robert’s in Queensland and Farmer’s and Grace Brother’s in New South Wales.
More information can be found at Wikipedia and the official website.

Novelty Label from a 1950s dress -
Yves Saint Laurent labels

Mid-70s Russian Military Inspired Coat and Hat
here is the label inside the hat
this Radcliffe label is a little bit different than the one on the resource ~ from a full-length nightgown, late 1940s, early 1950s
Here's a Gracette label from a full length nylon nightgown, est 1960s
This is from the 1960s from a sheer nylon "robe" of a 2 pc set, again, its a little bit different than the one in our resource:
this is from a 1950s/1960s bullet bra:
and this is from a 1930s peach heavily laced long-line bra. Think it is Franceva? i haven't been able to find any background info on it. It does say "custom made" in New York.
Thanks again for all you do!
I have a question about the label resource - do you want all labels even if we don't have an entry for the designer or manufacturer? In which case, I have a lot - and when I can I'll see what I can do about finding out info about them but if I can submit the labels in the meantime it would be a start.
Now - here's a '60s couture Chanel label, from a suit. I think it's mid '60s.
from a very late 50s or early 60s Royal Blue Velvet High Pillbox Hat
Thanks--got them all up to this point.
Sorry Nicole--I thought I answered your question but it looks like it never posted.
Anyhow--yes, submit all the labels you have. The only way we can make new entries on the resource is if someone submits them.
It takes time to get them on--but they will get on eventually.
Thanks Tiffany - I'll get them together. I get a lot of labels here that aren't in the resource, because I do all my buying locally!
