Utah Tailoring Mills of Ogden started business in 1934, creating custom clothing for individual clients. Sales reps would show samples to clients and the item was then made to order with that client's name embroidered on the label. They became known for their use of Hollywood actresses as models in their advertising. During the 1980s and 90s, the company’s clients were mainly ultra-rich women whose identity was kept private, with the average price between $1500-$2500. 

CONDITION: Dress is in excellent condition with no notable flaws. The belt buckle is missing 3 diamantés.
