Labels: Shannon Rodgers for Jerry Silverman, 1974-'95 ILGWU
(in business from 1959-1978, Rodgers was a film costumier, and the collaborative label was known for simple, elegant designs). Their donation of clothes to Kent State helped create the university's renowned costume collection.

Fiber/Care: no tags, feels like linen but doesn't wrinkle too easily, so may be a rayon blend / dry-clean only

Condition: diffuse stain at skirt and  subtle discoloration at top of shoulders, as shown. our dry-cleaner didn't remove it (and likely didn't try), but yours might do better. dress is priced accordingly.

*We've had this dress (and belt) professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*
