Betty B

found a beautiful 1940’s gaberdine wool jacket in perfect condition in Betty B in margate – lovely tailoring with hand finishing and i noticed the label as being finished by Handmacher.  i googled the name to discover that Alvin Handmacher was a producer of women’s suits in the US.  what was more interesting was the site, couture allure vintage fashion blog that i discovered –  which details lots of information about vintage labels and styles.  so now when i buy my vintage dresses, i can look up whether the designer was well known or find out about the styles and how they originated.
