The trade name has been in business since its past life as Ladies Hosiery and Underwear Limited at the comet tail of the Edwardian era celebrated for its ‘Belle Époque’ glam; the advent of bra gave the Flapper girls the fashionable boyish shape while jazzing the ‘roaring twenties’ club in short skirts and bobbed hair; Hollywood took its first breath and Mae West and other film stars meant vogue; Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor, formerly King Edward VIII of the United Kingdom and the Dominions, abdicated his throne to marry Wallis Simpson; and God bequeathed his decadent ‘New Look’ to Christian Dior then Mary Quant told the world what miniskirt is. Dorothy’s most legendary tale? A jersey top sold every two seconds. So the next time you see a vast numbers of small full, light pink flowers with intense fragrance in the late spring and early summer, that’s Dorothy Perkins — the most popular rambler in the United States and the Big Bang fashioner in the United Kingdom.
