Label Resource: Introduction & Terms of Use

Label Donation information can be found in our Label Forum

Welcome to the new VFG Label Resource. Here you’ll find a large collection of vintage clothing label images, complete with biographies and company histories for each label.

You will find them in alphabetical order in the Label Resource A-Z index

For our longtime users of this resource; you will notice the pages will look a little different now. Instead of one row of labels in chronological order, you will now see two rows. On some pages the labels may appear slightly out of date sequence due to new layout format. However, if you click on the first photo and continue to click “next”, you will see the labels in the order by date, just as always.

This application is in line with emerging smaller web browsing technologies, enabling the smart phone user to quickly access a certain label at a glance.

We are working hard to make sure this resource is as comprehensive as possible. It is a work in progress. Its growth depends upon contributions of labels, and any omissions are due to the fact that examples of many designers’ work are scarce. We welcome contributions of photographs of labels that are not represented on the resource.

This resource is to be used only as an educational tool, and is not intended as a value guide. Inclusion of a label in the resource is not an indication of value, as garments vary greatly in value depending on many factors. Another point that needs to be considered by users is that some companies used the same label for many years, and just because the garment used on the label resource is a certain date does not mean that all garments with the same label are the same date.

The labels included have been carefully researched, we have worked hard to insure that all information is correct. If a mistake should be found, we would greatly appreciate access to your information so the resource can be corrected.
