Vintage Fashion Guild tells us that:
"Milgrim was a specialty store that dated from, at least, the early 1920s in New York City and later with stores in Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and other cities in the East. The designer at Milgrim was Sally Milgrim. As in other stores in the first half of the 20th century, Milgrim had both a custom salon and ready-to-wear clothes. They also imported and sold French designs. Milgrim ready-to-wear was sold in department stores around the country. One of the labels was “salymil,” a contraction of Sally Milgrim."
ILGWU Union label dated to between 1964 and 1973
