Mademoiselle Dior, mid 90s bodycon dress:
Jean Paul Gaultier label from his controversial 'Les rabbins chics' or 'Chic rabbis' collection of f/w 93. Inspired by the hasidic jewish clothing style. This one is from a shimmering sage green rayon fringe dress.
Super cute Butterfield 8 label from a 70s caftan:
From a 70s cotton dress made with Liberty fabric
We do have three Serbin labels in the resource already, but this one is just a little different with the "designed by Marianne" at the bottom of it.
From a 1970s khaki safari tent dress.
From a mini-dress. Possible dates: 1968 through early 70s
Country of origin: Germany
Styles: Mostly mini-dresses
A young fashion line started by the German singer known as Manuela and sold through department stores. "Young, sporty, comfortable and chic - and all of that with music"
See https://forums.vintagefashionguild.org/threads/label-star-boutique-manuela.64007/ for the original post and further information regarding this label.
To add to the existing Bernhard Altmann entry.
From this 60s coat with mink collar:
1960's Miss Elaine label
1970s Vera for Formfit Rogers. I didn't see any Vera labels in the Formit Rogers page or this label on the Vera page either.
Late 90s Valentino 2 pc women's suit:
Jean Patou 1919-1922, courtesy Marilyn Most (Ref: FB VCAT1).
Early 1930s R & K Original label to replace the one we have that is not as clear. Two views so you can choose the one you prefer.
ACWA label from a dated 1951 mens winter coat:
Betsey Johnson reissued "Vintage" punk label
Most of the items I'm finding with this label have similar motifs - a long sweater (or ULTRA mini MINI dress!) in yellow knit with black & redintarsia Devil head - with a very 90's feel... but based on the content/care tag, as well as the use of the word "vintage" on the label... I'm wondering if it's maybe newer than that? Anyone know when this was re-issued?
Regardless -- I thought you'd maybe like to add this to the resource, especially since it's so similar to the original "punk" label - I'm sure many newbie sellers will confuse the two...
I can add that label if we can pin down a definitive date
I wish I was more help! lol!
I did a few quick searches, but people calling the items 90's is about all I could find!!
Here's a Frost Brothers label from a 1980s full-length fur coat. Found the Frost Bros entry in the Label Resource on this site and noticed how different this label is from the others. I also found some information about Frost Bros here... check out all the departments and services they had! The comments are really interesting as well. Seems like they were lovely stores while they lasted. http://www.thedepartmentstoremuseum.org/2010/06/frost-bros-san-antonio.html
So the cute font is gone and there's no "San Antonio" either. I was told that the coat was purchased in Texas in 1989, so hopefully my grandma got it at a nice discount before they all closed down ;)
There are two items on eBay that have similar labels, but with black text on a white background.
Moschino 1980s Mens Wool Coat
New here with several labels (about 50 or so) to add to the resources. I have been collecting these and have been meaning to add them for over 4 yrs now. Sorry~Better late than never! If I am not doing this right, please let me know....This first one is a custom label designed by Edie from her wardrobe collection. (Edie Adams, 1927 - 2008). Her main designer was James Galanos but she also loved to re create things and started a line of her own in her later years called EDIAD and also Bonham. Many of the labels I will be providing come from her private wardrobe collection that can be seen in my online store. The Bonham label is taken from a 1950's silk blouse and the EDIAD from a 1960 gown that she wore on stage. More information about her can be provided for the bio if needed~
Here are a few more. I will do them in groups alpha order which seems to be the best way.
