Label: Blum's-North Chicago store. A little history about the Blum's Label:
Blum's Vogue Chicago designer label was a high end designer department store. It is no fashion secret that Blum's dressed Chicago's most fashionable women for decades. For forty years, Harry Blum, owner of Blum's Vogue would travel to Paris every season to pick out the fashion for the department store. Blum would buy from designers such as, Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy, and Mme Gres. He would also carry American designer labels such as, Norell, Trigere, Ben Zuckerman, Galanos, Werle, Ceil Chapman, etc. Basically if it were a great designer Blum's carried it.
