    From a 1970s blouse. I've not been able to find out anything about this line. Unfortunately, it's a word for which it's hard to get useful results, especially since Oscar de la Renta released a fragrance called "Something Blue."

    Young Innocent by Arpeja label (slightly different than what is currently in the label resource) in a dress that dates to 1969 based on finding the dress featured in a fashion editorial in a magazine from September 1969.

    Sherman of London - I've seen a few blogs/listings saying this is or might be another Samuel Sherman label, but I can't find anything really definitive to prove that.

    From a 1970s maxi dress

    Not that well known manufacturer Miss KK from Toronto but I love how the label reads...maybe for the novelty label section from a 1950s pure silk cocktail party dress.



    These were made in larger sizes I would say 16 and up for the more mature figure.

    Keri Craig label. 1977 - present

    Keri Craig-Lee (nee Craig) is an Australian designer based in Brisbane. She was born in 1958 and in 1976 she obtained a Diploma in Fashion Design and Marketing from Waukesha County Technical College, Wisconsin, United States.

    In 1977 Craig-Lee established the eponymous fashion label, Keri Craig, and opened boutiques in Brisbane and Sydney, with her label becoming available throughout Australia and overseas. In 1984, she designed and coordinated Sir Elton John’s Sydney wedding to Renate Blauel.

    In 2017, Craig-Lee released her first book, 'Keri Craig: the label, the lady, the lifestyle', a pictorial biography chronicling her career spanning almost 40 years and featuring contributions from politicians, personalities and photographers. This book is a great resource for learning more about her designs.

    There were three shops — the flagship store in Brisbane’s Wintergarden, an exclusive boutique in Sydney’s prestigious Double Bay, and the remaining store at Brisbane Arcade, which has been in business since 1977. The existing store is called Keri Craig Emporium.

    A lover of “classic fashion”, Keri took a lot of her design inspiration from old movies starring Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor.

    Included is a photo of a label, as well as an image of a 1983 newspaper ad.

    T-U-S-S-I Label. 1970s?/1984 - 1987

    Owned by Australian Sidney Sernack.
    He traded under the labels Rain n' Shine, London Look, Mr Strange, Body Shop and Tussi and was known as the Man For Your Wardrobe. Retail outlet Quibbs in Rozelle, Paddington, Bondi Junction and the AMP building, Wholesale Cash and Carry in Pitt Street, and The Underground boutique on Wynyard Ramp.

    Known for very glam 1980s formal dresses, women's suits and coats.

    Sernack's decision to specialise in ladies' coats and suits brought instant success. His ability to anticipate the trends, and to source materials and designs from London, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo, saw his business grow and diversify during the 1970s and 1980s. Despite a number of financial and trading failures, he reached the pinnacle of his fashion career in 1984 when the Tussi label won the After Five section of the FIA awards.

    Cannot find any record of either Rain N Shine, the parent label, or of Tussi after 1987. Tussi doesn't appear to have existed before 1984.

    Dress I have is green taffeta and black velvet formal (prom) dress.
