    This is a place to SUBMIT LABELS ONLY - Not a place to discuss or ask questions about a label. If you would like to ask questions about a label PLEASE post in the forum located HERE.

    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 the following:
    (1) date of garment
    (2) type of garment
    (3) photo of garment
    (4) any information you have about the designer/label and where you found that info
    (5) how you would like to be credited for your contribution (i.e. your name, your VFG username, or your vintage fashion business name)

    Please submit a clear, straight, close-up shot of the label that is 500 pixels or larger.
    Here is an example:

    Also, because of the change of the label sizes when the website changed 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.

    Under copyright law, the owner of a photograph has exclusive rights to that photograph. Please, only submit images that are your own, or that you have obtained express permission to share. 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 send an email 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 the VFG in the following way: “Information courtesy of The Vintage Fashion Guild Label Resource” or “Information courtesy of {Contributor's Name}/the Vintage Fashion Guild 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!

    Here is an early 50's evening dress (with a nod to the 40's) made by "Chanel" Gowns, kings cross, New South Wales, Australia. It does not actually have any connection to the fabulous CHANEL house, but as I have been informed the similarity of name was a marketing ploy by an Australian designer/dress maker to induce custom. The font is quite different and the word Chanel has quotation marks around it on this copy label. I was asked to add it to the label resource. Happy to be credited as GemGem

    The Crafted with Pride logo was launched in July 1983 and appeared in clothing labels in 1984. It was designed to identify American made clothing to combat imports. The campaign was at its height into the early 90s and was a sponsor of the Miss America Pageant.

    Thanks, Ruth! I'd also like to add the other Richard Shops label you posted in the Q&A forum. The one from the cute purple knit mini.
    Would that be okay?

    yes of course. It's very similar to Impeys, and hers is less frayed. But take whatever you need.

    Hello! Here is the label from a lovely 1960s Jean Cacharel blouse in my collection. I believe this was the first Cacharel label. ✨

    Elizabeth Hawes Original/Brewster -
    In 1940 Elizabeth Hawes teamed up with Brewster Hats (I'm assuming it was a licensing deal) to manufacture a collection of hats. I found several newspaper articles throughout the year of 1940 advertising the collection, which included a sketch of this label and sketches of some of the hats, I'm pretty certain this is a style named, "Badminton" which came in black or navy felt. (Mine is missing it's feathers and original ribbon). According to many of the advertisements, Hawes also travelled to various department stores throughout the year of 1940 to promote the collection.

    I am astonished to see an item with Elizabeth Hawes' name, and am pretty sure I will never have anything of hers in my hands. LOVE her!
  19. I actually found it at Brimfield. I didn't even look at the label when I grabbed it. I just loved the hat. It wasn't until I met up with my friends for lunch and our "show and tell", that I realized what I had. That was a few years ago. I couldn't find anything with that exact label online. It look me a little while to get down to properly researching it. ;)
