Colors that I have seen are celery green, pink, champagne and gold/yellow. This heavy satin fabric is easily damaged. Corsages were worn pinned to the waist or shoulder area leaving rubs in the fabric which is un-repairable.
My love affair with Fred Perlberg began many years ago when I discovered one of his gowns at a little antique shop. Captivated by this 1940's beauty I have always been on watch for more of his classic styles.. The sight of a Fred Perlberg label sends chills up my spine.
Today you can still find earlier Perlberg satin gowns but be careful. Many have been altered and have fabric damage due to improper storage. Unfortunately satin is not an enduring fabric. I suppose no different than other vintage clothing but then to lose a Perlberg........
He designed until 1968 and sold the label to Roger Milot in approximately 1970. Sadly he passed away at the age of 90 in 1991. He was named Man of the Year by the fashion industry in 1968.
