    Hi All! I have become a collector of vintage lingerie- and am trying to learn more about dating Victoria’s Secret pieces.

    Can anyone help with dating this nightie?
    It’s ‘Made in China’, which through me off- but it was such a unique and fun piece - had to pick it up.

  3. Hi Emru and welcome to the forums. Although China was manufacturing garments for the tourist market for a long time, 'Made in China' as a mass-produced commercial enterprise started in the early '90s so your item is unlikely to predate this time. I can't read the RN clearly but you can search that and it might give you some information too.

    I just watched part one of the documentary about Victoria's Secret - there they said that their owner was a pioneer in having cheap clothing produced in China, and they claim that they started that before official relations between the US and China had been taken up (which, if I got that right, was 1979) - though then they mentioned Hong Kong first. But from the context I assumed they started in the late 70s or early 80s with having clothing produced in China.
     
  5. yes: before the early ‘90s most Chinese-made clothing was made in British Hong Kong. The labels say this, not made in China.
