LABEL: Nu-Mode Toronto 

Jonathon from Cambridge's Fashion History Museum tells us that:

"Nu-mode was founded in 1950 by Fred Singer (the youngest of 13 children from a Polish-Jewish family who had immigrated to Toronto in c. 1900), and his cousin Henry Zagdanski, a Holocaust survivor who came to Toronto in 1946. They ran the company as a small operation until they were bought out by Dylex Diversified in 1967. They continued to manage the company, which grew into a large manufacturer, until 1997 when the two original owners sold out to a former employee, Saul Greenberg. The company had troubles surviving WTO competition from countries with cheap labour, and finally closed in 2019."
