I recently added this fun and fabulous 1940’s Conversational Print dress by Ellen Kaye to my shop Noble Savage Vintage on Ruby Lane. It is one of my favorite pieces and I just adore it’s quirky print, which consists of a repeat of swordfish and a ladies head. I typically see 1950’s dresses from this maker. I decided to do a little bit of research.
It turns out that the name has been around since 1922, trademarked by LANG-KOHN, INC. of ST. LOUIS. Apparantly , St. Louis was the origin of the junior apparel craze. In 1926, Lang-Kohn, Inc. would become the company, that manufactured the first junior size garments in the country. I found quite a few Ellen Kaye ads in the Newspaper archives and thought I would share a few.
