Some background for you, courtesy Vintage Fashion Guild, written by Lizzie Bramlett of The Vintage Traveler:
The label "Shannon Rodgers for Jerry Silverman” was established in 1959. Rodgers previously designed for the movies and later worked with Silverman at Martini, a dress company that did adaptations of Paris designs. Rodgers and Silverman did simple, but elegant, dresses, often with a single decoration to add interest. They closed around 1978. In 1983 they donated their large clothing collection to Kent State University, where it formed the basis of their museum’s collection of historical fashion.
