1950s LBD @ www.pastperfectvintage.comNow who is Mr. Mort? According to the Vintage Fashion Guild, he was Mortimer Goldman. Now I all always happy to find out that the label is named for a real person, not a creation of the marketing department. I know, I am such a traditionalist. Stan Herman designed for the company in the late 50s and 60s. They have been described as "producing mid-priced but fashionable" garments. All I can say is that quality in mid priced dresses has gone down hill since the 1950s. If this were a 'mid priced' cocktail or party dress made today, it would be polyester with a nylon zip, cheap lace, machine sewn crap sleeve plackets, no bodice flatlining and about 1/2 the fullness on the skirt.
And that is one of the great things about vintage fashion. The quality. The labor. The idea that middle class women deserved value for the money.
