Wesley Simpson was a fabric designer, and was the husband of designer Adele Simpson. Today he is probably known mostly for the scarves he designed and produced in the late 1940s.
Today most consumers would be hard pressed to name even one maker of fabrics but in the mid 20th century, the fabric used by a maker of clothing was often a big selling point. Clothing manufacturers and fabric makers often teamed up for joint ad campaigns, and it is not uncommon to see a fabric label along with the maker’s label in a high quality vintage garment.
I love the matching shoes, which were made by Joyce. The swimsuit is by Cole of California.
