This is an opportunity vintage late 1940’s early 1950’s piece of fashion history. This dresses label is from well known designer Carolyn Schnurer. During her twenty-year career in fashion, from 1944 to 1964, Carolyn Schnurer (1908-1998) was a pioneer in the newly emerging American sportswear industry. Directing her designs toward young active women, Schnurer developed coordinates and dresses that were unfussy, required minimal foundation garments and could be worn for a variety of occasions. Particularly renowned for her culturally-inspired resort collections, rather than a blatantly costumed appearance, Schnurer’s designs maintained a classic American silhouette while incorporating the cultural theme in fabric selection or construction detail. This dress still has vibrant hues of orange and yellow. The print looks like it could be a block style print.
This dress opens with a metal side zip with hook and eye.
