Barclay, Betty

Betty Barclay was not an actual person, but was just a name made up for this mid-priced line of ready-to-wear dresses. The company was owned by the Jonathan Logan company, one of the largest clothing manufacturers in the USA. In 1955 German textile maker Max Berk acquired the German license to make Betty Barclay dresses for the European market. In 1972 the company was bought by the German branch, and it is still in operation today.
