    I watched 'Ethel and Ernest' on the BBC iplayer the other night and discovered that Dorothy Perkins is in fact the name of a rose (in the film, the roses survive a bomb attack near the house during WWII). Since the early Dorothy Perkins labels had a rose logo it's safe to assume the label was named after the rose and not a person as I always assumed (though I suppose the roses are named after the person after all!)

    I have a 1950s-early 60's negligee with this label I will try and find. Does anyone else have the earlier rose label?
